The United Nations Institute of Disarmament Research (UNIDIR), Conflict Armament Research and Stimson Center hosted an informal virtual meeting as part of substantive preparations for the upcoming Ninth Conference of States Parties to the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT CSP9). The virtual event was organised in support of the Republic of Korea’s (ROK) Presidency of the ATT CSP9 and fostered an interactive dialogue on the President’s revised working paper, including the addition of a new annex to serve as the basis for “a living document containing a list of possible reference documents to be considered by States Parties for ensuring industry compliance with national control systems to implement the ATT and conduct responsible international transfers of conventional arms”. The event sought to increase knowledge among ATT Stakeholders on the role of Industry in responsible international transfers of conventional arms (ATT CSP9 theme) and to support substantive preparations for the CSP9, scheduled to take place during 21-25 August 2023 in Geneva.
Moderator: Rachel Stohl, Vice President, The Stimson Center
