Chatham House

This is a summary of an event held on 21 February at Chatham House.

A week before the beginning of the second Preparatory Committee on the Arms Trade Treaty at the United Nations in New York, this workshop, organised by Chatham House in collaboration with Saferworld and entitled ‘The Arms Trade Treaty: What Next?’, was designed to inform the debate in the run up to the negotiation phase in 2012. This paper builds on previous efforts and engagement in this field, and aims to provide an accurate overview of the discussions and main themes examined during the debate in London, which was held under the Chatham House Rule.
