Saferworld is working to strengthen national, regional, and international controls on the global transfer of arms. We do this by advising governments and holding them to their obligations – to safeguard people’s security and build peace and not undermine them by misusing or transferring arms irresponsibly. We engage in dialogue with government officials – including through targeted policy briefings and bilateral meetings – to encourage the progressive development of robust and transparent arms controls.
We also work in coalition with other organisations to achieve strengthened and coordinated arms control processes at regional and global levels.
The Arms Trade Treaty – we are working to ensure that this global treaty to regulate the arms trade is implemented.
