A large number of people in the Horn of Africa have grown up in the midst of armed conflict. They are never far from violence and danger. The abundance of weapons in the region and the constant influx of new arms play a large role in these conflicts. In the report ‘Armed and insecure’, PAX provides a unique overview of the manner in which armed conflict and the arms trade reinforce each other.

‘Armed and insecure’ deals with the security situation and the arms trade between 2010 and 2015 in Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan and Uganda.

A summary of the report is also available.
