The Norwegian Initiative on Small Arms Transfers (NISAT) organised an international workshop on "Integrating Small Arms Measures into Development Programmes" in Oslo, 30 November – 1 December 2006. The workshop gathered over 60 participants from 30 countries (of which about 20 from developing regions) with the aim to share knowledge and experience of initiatives to address the impact of small arms violence upon sustainable development.

This policy brief highlights the main themes of discussion during the workshop and presents key objectives and recommendations which were subsequently elaborated on by the organisers.
