The chapter evaluates the potential of the Arms Trade Treaty to identify and reduce violations of international humanitarian law and human rights law. It assesses the process and the outcome of the negotiation of an Arms Trade Treaty, the first international instrument that makes an explicit link between arms export and its potential consequences in terms of violations of international humanitarian law and human rights law. The chapter presents the negotiation history of the ATT, comparing it to other recent treaty negotiations within humanitarian disarmament, and discusses the association between international law and peace studies. The main aim of the chapter is to present the ATT’s provisions concerning export control and in regulating the situations in which arms exports will be prohibited.
