Daily monitoring of firearms incidents in South East Europe. As reported by the media.
Civilians` lives are affected daily by the uncontrolled spread and misuse of firearms. Despite this, quality data on the impact of firearms on society remains scarce in the region. To track firearms-related incidents, SEESAC is establishing the Armed Violence Monitoring Platform (AVMP) – collecting firearms-related data in South East Europe since 2014 to today. The population of the AVMP data is still in progress. No data for Albania and Kosovo* is available yet, data for the Republic of Moldova is available only for 2014, 2015. Establishment and maintenance of the AVMP is funded by the European Union within the framework of the EU Council Decision 2016/2356.More about the platform
