IANSA paper on differences between UN arms control instruments

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). These instruments both have the capacity to achieve our aims of reducing gun violence and the proliferation of small arms and light weapons, therefore it is of great importance that both the PoA and ATT are as strong and effective as they can be.

The IANSA network has played an important role in both processes to date, and with the ATT negotiating conference and the PoA Review Conference both taking place in 2012 it is a crucial time for IANSA to make its voice heard and ensure both meetings are successful in supporting rather than supplanting each other.
