Dead on Time - arms transportation, brokering and the threat to human rights. Executive Summary
This document is the executive summary of a report which examines the role of private contractors in arms transfer logistics, brokering and transport. The report shows how arms trade routes are becoming more complex, requiring even more differentiated logistical, transport, brokerage, and financial arrangements. Amnesty is calling for 13 measures by governments, to be taken to prevent illicit arms brokering, logistics and transport activities, especially to destinations where the arms are likely to be used to facilitate serious violations of international human rights standards and international humanitarian law.
