Show Summary Details


This chapter explores Article 15 of the ATT, which establishes rules for international co-operation among states parties to promote effective implementation of the ATT. The rationale for this and the following provision (on assistance) is to build confidence among states parties for implementation of the ATT, recognizing that this demands action and support at international level. The article requires state parties to afford each other ‘the widest measure’ of assistance in investigating and prosecuting violations of national measures that implement the ATT. It also covers the transfer of conventional arms as opposed to their use, including through brokers that violate national laws. Ultimately, the article institutes an environment conducive to co-operation which needs to be built progressively among states parties through dialogue and transparency, including reporting in accordance with Article 13 of the ATT.
