This section contains recommendations for a teaching sequence and timing intended to achieve learning outcomes through a three-hour class. The lecturer may wish to disregard or shorten some of the segments below in order to give more time to other elements, including introduction, icebreakers, conclusion or short breaks. The structure could also be adapted for shorter or longer classes, given that the class durations vary across countries.
Individually, students should research an attack by an OCG or terrorist group, which has happened in the past twelve months in their region and prepare to talk about what firearms/SALW were used. How central is the role of firearms in allowing OCGs or terrorist groups to flourish and increase their power, and what impact does this have on the wider society?
