FES New York, together with a group of partner organizations, co-sponsored a side event during this year’s UN’s First Committee Session. Invited diplomats and arms control experts discussed how states, international and regional organizations, and NGOs can work together towards increasing the number of Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) states parties in Africa. The debate also explored already existing tools for ATT-implementation, and related cooperation and assistance activities.
