Domestic accountability for international arms transfers: Law, policy and practice
31 August 2021 |
Open Secrets and SALC’s legal case to have the Gauteng High Court review the export of weapons to Saudi Arabia and the UAE has been included in Saferworld’s latest publication, Domestic accountability for international arms transfers: Law, policy and practice.
This report – the eighth in Saferworld’s ATT Expert Group series – examines, compares and contrasts ten separate legal challenges to stop the governments of the UK, US, France, Canada, Italy, Spain, Belgium, the Netherlands and South Africa from continuing to supply arms into the Yemen war.
It also considers some of the broader points of law raised by this recent trend, including the implications it might have for the implementation of the ATT and whether the ATT itself might be a factor in this development.
