dc.descriptionThe Arms Trade Treaty, the first treaty to regulate the international transfer of&nbsp;conventional arms and ammunition, was adopted in 2013 at the United Nations. It aims&nbsp;to regulate the flow of weapons around the world by requiring governments to assess all&nbsp;arms transfers against a set of criteria, before the transfer is authorised or denied. The&nbsp;agreed criteria include language on the risks of gender-based violence. This is a landmark&nbsp;provision, and shows that the issues of women, peace and security have successfully&nbsp;moved into the realm of mainstream security. This article explores how this happened,&nbsp;and the lessons campaigners can learn from this campaign success. The article also&nbsp;explores what the implications are for progress on reducing gender-based violence in&nbsp;conflict, and the areas of uncertainty as attention turns to the treaty&rsquo;s implementation. This article is hosted by our co-publisher Taylor & Francis.
