Control Arms Campaign

Control Arms is a global civil society alliance campaigning for a "bulletproof" Arms Trade Treaty that will protect lives and livelihoods. A "bulletproof" Arms Trade Treaty means an international legally-binding agreement that will stop transfers of arms and ammunitions that fuel conflict, poverty and serious violations of human rights and international humanitarian law

More than 2 million children have died as a direct result of armed conflict over the last decade.  More than three times that number, at least 6 million children, have been permanently disabled or seriously injured (UNICEF).

The unregulated arms trade fuels conflict, poverty and serious human rights abuses. It also limits people's ability to earn a living, grow crops, and benefit from education, whilst diverting money that should be used for vital services such as health care.The Control Arms campaign has been set up to bring an end to the unregulated arms trade.

Campaing wants governments to take responsibility for protecting and assisting civilians during crisis. Governments must uphold international obligations such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Geneva Conventions.
