The diversion of conventional arms and related ammunition/munitions, parts and components to unauthorized end users and uses poses a significant threat to societies around the globe. While Article 11 of the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) requires States Parties to take measures to specifically prevent, detect, and address the diversion of conventional arms, many other ATT articles contain obligations and recommendations to strengthen national capacities to prevent, detect, and address diversion.
This event will shed light on some of the key what?, where?, how?, and who? factors that facilitate the diversion of conventional arms. Speakers will share some of the “red flags” that national authorities should keep in mind when seeking to prevent, detect, eradicate, and address diversion. The UNIDIR, CAR, Stimson Issue Brief “Diversion Analysis Framework” will be launched at the event.
This event is co-hosted by Conflict Armament Research (CAR) and the United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research (UNIDIR).
When you RSVP you will also receive updates on Stimson research and events.
