Using this framework, the paper provides an overview of good practice documents and guidelines, and of past and ongoing cooperation activities aimed at improving states’ arms transfer controls. The paper aims to highlight areas where ATT implementation efforts can build on work that has already been done and address potential gaps that may need to be filled.
