On October 9, PSFG will host an
expert tele-briefing on the Arms Trade Treaty and what were the
campaign's successes (and failures), how philanthropists can engage, and
what are the next steps. We will be joined by two top experts: Rachel
Stohl (Stimson Center) and Eric Sapp (American Values Network). Please contact us if you'd like to join the call.
Below are a select number of additional resources on the Arms Trade Treaty:
- Oxfam's campaign page, which includes the work of many NGOs working on this issue: http://www.oxfam.org/en/campaigns/conflict/controlarms/why-we-need-global-arms-trade-treaty.
- American Values Network's Arms Trade Treaty page, including viral videos: http://americanvaluesnetwork.org/att/.
- Stimson Center's resources page, which includes a recent op-ed by Rachel: http://www.stimson.org/research-pages/conventional-weapons/.
- Editorial: "Containing the Conventional Arms Trade" The NY Times editorial board supports the ATT, calling it "a pioneering agreement that is unquestionably needed" but also warns against the long road ahead of its ratification by the U.S. Senate and other countries opposed to it.
