Written by IANSA Woman Rebecca Gerome, this report presents the main findings of an assessment conducted in Lebanon, Jordan and Occupied Palestinian Territory from January to May 2011

This new publication from the IANSA Women's Network aims to show why it is important to include women in small arms control and disarmament initiatives

This information pack was prepared by IANSA for the African Union Expert Meeting to elaborate an ATT common position in Lome, Togo 28-29 September 2011.

This document outlines recommendations that would strengthen areas of the Arms Trade Treaty that have the potential to control and reduce the proliferation of small arms and light weapons and related ammunition. The inclusion of these is vital if the Arms Trade Treaty is to be effective in saving lives and reducing serious injury to people around the world.

This brand new briefing paper gives an overview of the differences between the UN Programme of Action on small arms (PoA) and the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT).
