Over a period of roughly a decade a framework for the control of small arms and light weapons (SALW) in Africa has gradually been created. This framework has developed, in part, in regional responses to two main United Nations instruments to control small arms: the 2001 UN Programme of Action to Prevent, Combat and Eradicate the Illicit Trade in Small Arms and Light Weapons in All Its Aspects (POA) and the 2001 UN Firearms Protocol.1 The first steps in the process were made in 2000 when the Organization of African Unity (OAU) compiled a common African position on the trafficking and proliferation of SALW in which African states committed themselves to combating the illicit proliferation, circulation and trafficking of SALW at the regional and subregional levels.2
