China ATT Update

Issue 7

This is the seventh issue of ATT Update, co-published by Saferworld and the School of Political Science at Tongji University. The ATT Update is a platform for Chinese and other international experts, academics, and students to exchange their views on efforts to regulate international transfers of conventional arms under the ATT process.

This issue includes contributions from Rodrigo Pintado, Senior Advisor for International Security at Mexico's Vice Ministry for Multilateral Affairs and Human Rights, and from Elizabeth Kirkham, Small Arms and Transfer Controls Adviser, and Roy Isbister, Team Leader of Small Arms and Transfer Controls, both from Saferworld. Rodrigo Pintado notes the strong political commitment to the ATT and explains the idea behind the first Conference of States Parties. Kirkham and Isbister explain why it is in the interests of China to sign the treaty, with key considerations including: combating terrorism, preventing arms transfers to non-state actors, establishing a level playing field for industry, helping to promote stable environments and China’s global role. The introduction is contributed by Anna Macdonald, Director of the Control Arms Secretariat.
