Towards an Arms Trade Treaty – Now or Never?

9th September 2010

In October 2009, a majority of UN Member States voted to adopt a clear timetable for the development of an arms trade treaty. Building on the preparatory committee's meeting in July, this seminar will discuss the necessity for a treaty and the legal issues that arose in the meetings. Questions of interest include the minimum standards that should be applicable to the use, management and transfer of arms, as well as the limitations states may place on the international transfer of arms.
