Burundi: IANSA member calls for regional arms control

Good Generation of Burundi, an IANSA member in Burundi, launched an awareness-raising campaign on the Kinshasa Convention by handing a brief calling for the ratification of the Convention to the Minister of Foreign Affairs. They also held consultations on the Convention with members of the Burundian Action Network on Small Arms (BUANSA), other members of IANSA in Burundi, women's groups and survivors. The aim of the event was to give a space to communities to express themselves and demand that the government act in favour of strict controls on arms in the Central African region. Journalists were also present at the launch.
