Practical Tools for Addressing the Risk of Weapons Diversion

The diversion of conventional weapons from licit to illicit markets is a key international security concern, as unregulated weapons can exacerbate and perpetuate conflict and armed violence, facilitate violations of international human rights law and international humanitarian law, and contribute to insecurity and instability. Such risks underscore the importance of robust arms transfer controls and weapons management procedures at the national level.

Join the Stimson Center, the Small Arms Survey, Conflict Armament Research, and the United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research for an expert discussion on practical tools national governments can use to address the risk of weapons diversion and better secure the global arms trade. The event will launch a new Stimson Center report, Diversion and the Arms Trade Treaty: Identifying Good Practice and Opportunities for Progress .
