Deadly and dangerous arms trade
It is time for all governments to commit to securing an international Arms Trade Treaty. Hundreds of thousands of people are killed, injured, raped, repressed and forced to flee their homes every year as a result of the international arms trade. There is not yet a global treaty to strictly control the deadly trade in conventional arms. The global market place is a complex environment. Transactions often involve many different suppliers, agents, brokers and transporters – sometimes operating from several different jurisdictions.
