SALW survey of Croatia.

Release date: 2006-05

This report is a SALW Survey of the Republic of Croatia. It was conducted between January and June 2006 in accordance with a set of guidelines developed by the South Eastern and Eastern Europe Clearinghouse for the Control of SALW (SEESAC), in co-operation with a non-governmental research organization, the Small Arms Survey. These guidelines determined the scope, method and objectives of the research. The survey addresses SALW issues through four main components:

  • Small Arms Distribution Survey (SADS), which investigates the distribution of small arms across Croatia.
  • Small Arms Impact Survey (SAIS), which examines the impact of SALW on the human environment, specifically by looking at armed crime and the impact on individuals, communities and the state.
  • Small Arms Perception Survey (SAPS), which assesses the views of the public in relation to SALW in their communities.
  • Small Arms Capacity Survey (SACS), which examines the capacity of institutions for dealing with small arms problems.
