Abstract:

This title assesses the impact of the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) approved by the UN in 2013 and which set legally binding standards to regulate global arms exports. It explores the reasons top arms-exporting democracies have put aside past sovereignty, security and economic worries in favour of humanitarian arms transfer controls, and follows the early effects of this about-face on export practice. It explains that this treaty reflects a growing concern that conventional arms play a significant role in perpetuating human rights violations, conflict and societal instability worldwide.
