Please join us for an expert discussion on how to apply key aspects of ATT Article 7 within the arms export risk assessment process, thereby enabling governments to make well-informed decisions. Presentations will focus on how to assess GBV risks in arms transfer controls and how to apply the terrorism and transnational organised crime provisions.
Two new reports will provide the backdrop to these discussions:
- The Arms Trade Treaty’s Gender-Based Violence Risk Assessment. A Questionnaire for Information Sources. Coyle, V; Stimson Center 2021
- Arms exports, terror and crime: Reducing risk under the Arms Trade Treaty, Rafferty J, Kirkham E, Isbister R; Saferworld 2021
Consideration will also be given to the real-world contexts that inform and shape States’ responses under the ATT to the problems of GBV, terrorism and transnational organised crime.
