Curbing the arms trade

There are currently no legally binding, international rules regulating the arms trade.

This trade has catastrophic results - in an average year, small arms kill around a third of a million men, women and children - leaving hundreds of thousands more injured, disabled, and traumatised.

Oxfam is part of the Control Arms coalition, working to secure an international treaty to prevent the illegal trade in weapons which fuel atrocities.
