Thus, the emerging norm must cohere with the environment and norms already in place. As will be demonstrated here, this can only be successfully seen in some instances of norm building and it will be rejected in others (see the last chapter in the book).

The chapter starts with the analysis of changes in the arms-control patterns and in security perceptions after the Cold War.

The last part of Chapter 2 details the formation of a global and regional action and policy framework on small arms, including the formation of a transnational action and policy network on small arms and the formation of a coalition of like-minded states; and, finally, the chapter outlines the main regional and international legally and politically binding documents on small arms until 2005.
