This description of James Bevan's work was prepared when James Bevan was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2014.
James Bevan has developed a global methodology to identify and map flows of illegal weapons into armed conflicts. Through Conflict Armament Research, James collects first-hand data on conventional weapons and ammunition and feeds them into an innovative online mapping tool. By holding every actor to account, James is changing the incentives and capacities of both exporting and importing countries to control weapon flows into conflict areas. Ultimately, James is opening up a powerful mechanism to regulate the global arms trade and decrease violent conflict.
