Saferworld works 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 build peace and safeguard people’s security by not 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 rooted in international law.
We also work in coalition with other non-government organisations to achieve strengthened and coordinated arms control processes at national, regional and global levels.
The Arms Trade Treaty – we work to ensure that this global treaty to regulate the arms trade is implemented.
