Implementing the GBV, Terrorism, and Transnational Organized Crime Provisions of ATT Article 7: Tools for Effective Export Risk Assessment

Please join us for an expert discussion on how to apply key aspects of ATT Article 7 within the arms export risk assessment process, thereby enabling governments to make well-informed decisions. Presentations will focus on how to assess GBV risks in arms transfer controls and how to apply the terrorism and transnational organized crime provisions.Two new reports will provide the backdrop to these discussions:

-The Arms Trade Treaty’s Gender-Based Violence Risk Assessment. A Questionnaire for Information Sources.
-Arms exports, terror and crime: Reducing risk under the Arms Trade Treaty.

Consideration will also be given to the real-world contexts that inform and shape States’ responses under the ATT to the problems of GBV, terrorism and transnational organized crime.
