The widespread view that international arms transfers need to be controlled to prevent such transfers fuelling violence and armed conflict was reaffirmed in 2013 when a large majority of states adopted the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT), the first international treaty aimed at regulating the arms trade.1 Among other things, the treaty prohibits a state party from authorizing the transfers of arms if that state has knowledge that the transferred arms would be used in the commission of genocide, crimes against humanity or war crimes. Moreover, the treaty requires that the exporting state, prior to authorizing exports of arms, must assess the potential for those arms to undermine peace and security or be used to commit serious violations of international humanitarian law or international human rights law.
