Conventional arms control by states usually takes one of two broad approaches: limiting and/or prohibiting weapons—including, where appropriate, the means and methods of delivering those weapons—considered to be inhumane or indiscriminate; or regulating and managing weapons production and trade, with a view to preventing their destabilizing accumulation, diversion and/or misuse. This chapter reviews the developments and negotiations that took place in 2018 in four of the main global instruments for regulating the production, trade and use of conventional weapons. The 2013 Arms Trade Treaty (ATT), another major instrument, is discussed in chapter 10.
