The Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) was adopted via a United Nations General Assembly vote in April 2013 and entered into force on 24 December 2014. The ATT is the first legally binding international agreement to establish standards regulating the trade in conventional arms and preventing their illicit trade.1 As of 31 January 2016, 80 states had ratified or acceded to the ATT and a further 50 had signed the treaty. Most of the states that have ratified or acceded to the ATT are from Europe or Latin America and the Caribbean. Of the 54 African states, 38 have signed the treaty but only 18 have ratified it.2 However, the proportion of both signatories and states parties is lowest in Asia. Of the 28 states in Central Asia, East Asia and South Asia, only 10 are signatories and only Japan is a state party.
