New Armed Violence Monitoring Platform (AVMP) by SEESAC

On 9th May, SEESAC launched an online platform dedicated to fact-checking daily firearms incidents across the South East Europe region. The Armed Violence Monitoring Platform (AVMP), available here, aims at helping to monitor firearms-related incidents happening in the region, thanks to the data obtained from media reports or official sources from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo*, the Republic of Moldova, Montenegro, Serbia and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. Users can easily browse or search through the vast data by selecting the type of incident, firearms used, the gender of the victim and perpetrator to geographic references of the incident.

* This designation is without prejudice to positions on status, and is in line with UNSCR 1244/1999 and the ICJ Opinion on the Kosovo declaration of independence.
