Assessing the feasibility, scope and parameters of an Arms Trade Treaty (ATT): An NGO perspective
This paper argues that for an ATT to be comprehensive and effective, it must be based on States' existing obligations under international law. The content of these obligations are found in a variety of international standards and instruments including: international and regional treaties, declarations and resolutions of the United Nations and other multilateral and regional organisations, and model regulations intended for national legislation. From these principles and documents, a series of clear obligations and emerging norms can be derived.
