This course is intended to train civil society actors and government officials of states having signed the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) on how to implement its provisions effectively. The course aimed to contribute to fulfilling the two main objectives of the ATT: Firstly, to “establish the highest possible common international standards for regulating or improving the regulation of the international trade in conventional arms” and, secondly, to “prevent and eradicate the illicit trade in conventional arms and prevent their diversion.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic this year’s course was for the first time held online.
