The book on the challenges of proliferation of small arms and light weapons to peacebuilding in Liberia and Sierra Leone. There is growing and persistent threat to security in the West Africa due to the spread of small arms and light weapons which is an indication that disarmament, demobilization and reintegration process has not been fully completed. The spread of the illicit weapons across regions contributes to growing lethality of conflict and insurgencies in different parts of the world. The proliferation and spread of small arms provides shadow markets which has led to smuggling and networks of transnational organized crimes. These are attributable to porosity of West African borders and Mano River region. The borders between West African States are long and full of footpaths, which are poorly patrolled. This book, therefore, provides additional information on the reasons for demand and supply of small arms and light weapons. The theoretical approaches are creed and grievances, human needs and conflict transformation.The analysis should help to reshape the thinking of policy makers. It will be a companion for researchers in peace -building and interested readers.
