Summary
With one gun for every ten people, the UN considers the small arms crisis one of the gravest challenges facing the world. As well as investigating the proliferation of firearms and the economic, political, and cultural reasons why people carry them, this award-winning program shows what is being done to curb a man-made pestilence. Both devastation and successful disarmament are seen in case studies from Albania, Mozambique, South Africa, Colombia, El Salvador, and the world's largest small arms manufacturer, the United States. Discussing these issues are Kofi Annan, Secretary-General of the United Nations; Jayantha Dhanapala, Under-Secretary-General for Disarmament; Carol Bellamy, executive director of UNICEF; and Robert Wall of the Firearms and Explosives Unit at Interpol.
