Missing pieces: A guide for reducing gun violence through parliamentary action

The handbook was produced jointly by the IPU Geneva-based Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue (HD Centre). The Handbook was formally launched on 30 April 2007, during the 116th IPU Assembly in Bali (Indonesia). The publication follows the adoption by the 114th IPU Assembly (Nairobi, 2006) of a resolution on The role of parliaments in strengthening the control of trafficking in small arms and light weapons and their ammunition. It looks at international commitments, identifies good practices and model legislation, and ultimately guides and inspires parliamentary action in this crucial area.
