December 2019 | Linking P/CVE & Illicit Arms Flows in Africa

This month, RESOLVE highlights recommended readings from our latest policy note. In “Linking P/CVE & Illicit Arms Flows in Africa,” Nicolas Florquin explores the synergies between the fields of small arms control and preventing and countering violent extremism as the recent AU Master Roadmap emphasizes. The policy note provides recommendations for P/CVE policy and practice, with a focus on arms trafficking across the continent’s land borders. To enhance the policy note, Mr. Florquin suggests further readings on the AU Master Roadmap, gender and arms control, illicit flows and violent extremism, and armed groups and small arms control.
