Contextualizing the Arms Trade Treaty: Law, Politics and the Everyday Reality of Conflict - Joakim Dungel Lecture

Föreläsning

The Joakim Dungel Lecture in International Justice 2020 aims to contextualize the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT). It is the first international, legally binding instrument that regulates the transfer of conventional arms. How effective has the ATT been? Has it changed the behavior of states parties? Has it managed to curb arms sales into conflict-affected and problematic states? Join us for an afternoon of lectures and discussions!

Roughly 217,000 people lost their lives to firearms-related violence in 2017-covering conflict and non-conflict deaths . The Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) entered into force in 2014. It is the first international, legally binding instrument that regulates the transfer of conventional arms. The adoption of the ATT was an achievement in and of itself. However, how effective has the ATT been in actually regulating the arms trade? Has the ATT changed the behavior of states parties? Has it managed to curb arms sales into conflict-affected and problematic states?

The 2020 edition of the Joakim Dungel Lectures in International Justice aims to contextualize the Arms Trade Treaty. It will unpack the facts and figures about the international-licit and illicit- arms trade, shed light on the content and implementation of the ATT and to assess to what extent it has accomplished what it set out to do.

These annual Lectures were instituted in 2012 to honour the life and work of Joakim Dungel, an alumnus of Gothenburg University who was killed on 1 April 2011 in Mazar-i-Sharif, Afghanistan, where he was working as a human rights legal officer for the United Nations. The Lectures are sponsored by the non-profit Association in Memory of Joakim Dungel (Swedish: Föreningen Joakim Dungels Minne, ideell förening).
