Firearms Possession and Human (In)Security: Impact on youth and gender based violence

Since June 20, the Public Policy Centre has been conducting a project concerning perceptions of firearms possession, especially among youth and women. The aim is to contribute to reduction of human insecurity in Serbia for these vulnerable groups. Qualitative data will be collected through interviews and focus gropus organized at three locations. Furthermore, based on the fieldwork findings and desktop research a policy brief will be produced and will be used in order to raise awarness about links between firearms possession and violence against youth and women. 

The project lasts until October 2016 and it is supported by the CLAIM! Citizen's Network for Peace, Reconcilliation and Human Security for the Western Balkans and Turkey within the grant which EU awarded this Network in 2012.
