IANSA at the ATT PrepCom, 11-15 July 2011

The third Preparatory Committee on the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT PrepCom) will take place at UN headquarters, 11-15 July. This PrepCom will focus on implementation of the Treaty. IANSA staff and members will be present in New York to monitor and participate in sessions and side events. IANSA is co-sponsoring 2 side events: “Health, women and development and the Arms Trade Treaty” co-organised with IPPNW and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) on 11 July; and “The African context: Preventing illicit trade through Compliance and Enforcement mechanisms in the Arms Trade Treaty" on 13 July, co-organised with the Permanent Mission of France to the United Nations and Amnesty International. Throughout the week we will be updating the network on IANSA’s five focus areas: small arms, ammunition, survivor advocacy, gender and international cooperation. http://iansa.org/campaign/arms-trade-treaty
