As an independent, non-profit organization, BICC deals with a wide range of global topics in the field of peace and conflict research centring on Conversion Studies. It works on the constructive transformation of conflicts, disarmament and poverty. Since 2012, BICC has developed and is maintaining the interactive SALW Guide in cooperation with the ZVBw. The online portal shows the most important small arms and light weapons. Besides technical details on individual types of weapons and their different version, photographs and drawings of marks, it also shows the global spread of these individual weapons. These details are intended to help identify SALW.
