Arms Trade Treaty Signed
In April, a campaign that spanned two decades and a UN process of seven years ended successfully. The Arms Trade Treaty is a remarkable victory, as the first global treaty to establish common standards for regulating international trade in conventional arms. While not perfect, it sets an important baseline for global action to control the conventional arms trade.
