SAS Podcast #28: Reporting from the Frontline: Weapons identification for journalists

09.02.2015  •  8 min 23 sec

In September 2014, in Istanbul, the Small Arms Survey held a weapons identification workshop for journalists reporting from conflict areas. Meeting the need for precise contextual information on the weapons used in conflict, and their origins, Small Arms Survey researchers introduced journalists to weapons identification techniques and practical considerations. By encouraging closer collaboration between journalists, researchers, and other specialists, the Survey contributes to a better understanding of the dynamics of weapons and conflict. In this episode, project coordinator Benjamin King and consultant Damien Spleeters report on how the workshop unfolded, and announce plans for further action in this area.
