Weekly InSight: Special Investigation on Firearms Trafficking in Honduras

ARMS TRAFFICKING / 24 AUG 2017 BY INSIGHT CRIME EN

In our August 24 Facebook Live session, Co-director Steven Dudley and Senior Editor Mike LaSusa spoke about InSight Crime's new special investigation on firearms trafficking in Honduras.

Our five-part investigation, carried out with InSight Crime's partner the Association for a More Just Society (Asociación para una Sociedad más Justa – ASJ), explains various aspects of the arms trade in Honduras. The report examines how firearms are trafficked into Honduras and how they are bought and sold within the country, where a large majority of murders are committed with firearms. The report also explores the steps authorities have taken to attempt to tackle illicit arms flows, how some of those efforts have fallen short and how they could potentially be improved.
