This was the basic question that set off the discussion in the one-day seminar titled : 'Impact Oriented Research on Small Arms in Burundi, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Republic of Congo (RoC) and Rwanda', and which brought together researchers from these countries to deliberate the state of research on small arms and light weapons (SALW) in their respective countries, and to discuss their research priorities for 2008 and beyond. The choice of these four countries arose from their geopolitical links in conflicts affecting them, as well as from the need to enhance the limited local research being undertaken on these issues.
