During 2022 a range of global, multilateral and regional efforts sought to strengthen controls on the trade in military items and in dual-use items relevant for conventional, chemical, biological and nuclear weapons and their delivery systems. Membership of the different international and multilateral instruments that seek to establish and promote agreed standards for the trade in arms and dual-use items remained unchanged. However, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February 2022 significantly disrupted or affected states’ efforts in the field of coordinated export measures. Export controls were a key tool through which states in the West sought to limit the capacities of Russia’s military and to influence both Russian and Belarusian decision-making. The international tensions arising from the invasion also significantly affected the functioning of the systems of multilateral export controls. The extent to which key aspects of the existing architecture can survive the current crisis remains an open question which will be largely determined by the course of the conflict and the ways in which states continue to use export controls to respond to Russia’s actions.
