This two-part podcast is based on interviews with participants at the Expert Meeting on armed violence observatories and monitoring systems held on 26-28 June 2013 by the Geneva Declaration on Armed Violence and Development, the Small Arms Survey, and the Geneva Peacebuilding Platform. The first set of interviews looked at why armed violence monitoring systems are needed and how they work.

The second installment of the podcast brings testimonies on the challenges of using data gathered by armed violence observatories to build policy action. Discussing these issues are Geneva Declaration Project Coordinator Luigi De Martino, UNDP Sudan Max Halty, ISS Pretoria’s Crime and Justice Hub Manager Lizette Lancaster, and criminologist Yann-Cedric Quéro, from the Université of Montré
