United Nations: Dedicated Arms Trade Treaty website now live

The dedicated United Nations website on the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) negotiations went live on 7 June: www.un.org/disarmament/ATT/. This website serves as the primary information platform regarding the historic United Nations Conference on the Arms Trade Treaty, which will take place in New York from 2 to 27 July. The Conference is expected to deliver on one of the most important initiatives ever within the United Nations in the field of conventional arms regulation: a robust agreement on common standards to prevent transfers of arms from fuelling conflict and gender-based violence and undermining human rights, humanitarian law and development.
