The Parliamentary Forum on Small Arms and Light Weapons (SALW or Parlamentarikerforum för lätta vapen-frågor) is an international network of parliamentarians dedicated to the issue of small arms and light weapons and their impact on societies.

The Parliamentary Forum provides a space for parliamentarians to debate, join forces, and contribute to the advancement of the small arms agenda at the national, regional and international levels. Today, the Parliamentary Forum accounts for more than 200 members representing all ends of the political spectrum and countries in Africa, North and South America, the Middle East and Europe.

The work of the Forum is supported by a Secretariat which provides for the administration of the Forum; capacity building of its members to enable them to effectively advance SALW issues; and policy-making technical expertise.
