Abstract:
Following the historic adoption of the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) in April of this year, states have been demonstrating continued commitment to this new instrument by signing the treaty. Opened for signature on 3 June, the number of ATT signatories has been increasing weekly--with a total of 85 at the time of publication. Of those, four have already ratified, led by Iceland on 2 July. In the Asia-Pacific region, just seven states have signed to date. A high-level meeting is planned on 25 September in advance of the opening of the UN General Assembly to garner additional signatures. The process towards signature and ratification can be complex so assistance has been made available to assist countries in their efforts. The United Nations Trust Facility Supporting Cooperation on Arms Regulation (UNSCAR) was established as a flexible, results-focused facility to support all aspects of the Arms Trade Treaty’s implementation, including small arms and ammunition controls. Proposals to the Facility are being accepted 1 September to 31 October 2013.
