The G8: global arms exporters: Failing to prevent irresponsible arms transfers
This document, a joint publication from Amnesty International, IANSA and Oxfam, looks at the G8 countries and how, contrary to their responsibilities and legal obligations, these countries are still supplying weapons and munitions to irresponsible end users. Six of the eight G8 countries are among the top 10 largest global arms exporters, and all of the eight export large amounts of major conventional weapons or small arms. So the G8 has a particular responsibility to help create an effective system of global control of arms transfers.
