The constant evolution of the ever-globalising arms trade has posed complex questions as to its regulation. This article attempts to address the question of whether globalising law and regulation of the arms trade is the answer, particularly given the rapid rate at which all aspects of this industry are evolving, its pluralistic character and the increasing authority that diverse involved actors have. It is the case that in the last few years, the global community has managed to agree to the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT). This shows a significant step in the global governance of an inherently global industry. In questioning whether and how global law for the arms trade can be shaped, this article also assesses the eventual ATT provisions and whether they adequately deal with the globalising elements of the arms industry.
