Roadmap for a sustainable solution to arms control

Roadmap for a sustainable solution to arms control in the Western Balkans by 2024 

The Roadmap was developed by the Western Balkans authorities with SEESAC’s technical support under the auspices of France and Germany and in consultation with the European Union (EU) and all other relevant actors. The Roadmap was adopted by the region’s leaders at the London Summit in the presence of EU leaders.

The Roadmap envisages the Western Balkans as a safer region and an exporter of security where comprehensive and sustainable mechanisms, fully harmonized with the EU and other international standards, are in place to identify, prevent, prosecute, and control the illegal possession, misuse and trafficking of firearms, ammunition and explosives. It is based on regional cooperation principals and it draws upon SEESAC’s signature solution to arms control resulted from over a decade of work on all arms control related aspects with governments in the region and in partnership with the EU.
