From Research to Road Map: Learning
from the Arms for Development
Initiative in Sierra Leone
Derek Miller, Daniel Ladouceur and Zoe Dugal
This joint UNIDIR–UNDP report presents the results of a 1,200-person survey on small
arms and security in Sierra Leone.
It offers an overview of the post-conflict DDR process,
the origins of UNDP’s Arms for Development project, and the findings of the survey at the
national and district levels.
A detailed retrospective is also provided on the design and conduct of the survey itself
in order to see how such activities might be improved. An appeal is made for the development
of a more rigorous and systematic approach to learning about local security problems as
they are understood by the stakeholders themselves. Some first thoughts on how this might
be accomplished are provided. The analysis concludes with a road map for future voluntary
collection efforts to stimulate discussion and provide guidance.
From Research to Road Map
will be of great interest to those concerned with the security
of Sierra Leone and its bordering countries, with the link between small arms and
development, and with efforts to make small arms and security programming appropriate to
culturally distinct communities.
