A Comprehensive Approach to Prevent and Mitigate the Risk of Diversion

Preventing and mitigating diversion of conventional weapons from licit to illicit markets is a central element of the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT). The theme of the 7th Conference of States Parties to the ATT focuses on strengthening efforts to eradicate the illicit trade in small arms and light weapons and ensure efficient stockpile management and is closely linked with efforts to combat diversion. This side event will underscore the importance of stockpile management in the context of the ATT as well as discuss other measures that States can utilize to address diversion risks.

Join the Stimson Center, the Small Arms Survey, Conflict Armament Research, the United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research, and the Mission of Sierra Leone to the United Nations in Geneva for an expert discussion on practical tools national governments can use to address the risks and impacts of weapons diversion and better secure the global arms trade.
