Asser Institute: Improving supply chain accountability for arms exports

13 May @ 15:00 14 May @ 16:00

According to Amnesty International, 44 percent of homicides globally were carried out with a gun, with easy access to guns being among the driving reasons behind this concerning statistic. At the same time, there is significant evidence pointing to the negligence of gun makers in their manufacturing, distribution and sales practices, including in exporting arms to countries with worrying levels of corruption and human rights violations.

This event will feature one high-level roundtable and three panel sessions. The roundtable will include policymakers from the United States, the European Union, and Guatemala. The three panel sessions will feature experts, policymakers and CSO representatives. Panel one will discuss how to improve arms tracing from manufacture to crime scene. Panel two will broach human rights due diligence in the arms industry. Panel three will focus on access to remedies for victims of negligent arms exports.
