dc.description<p>In October 2003, Oxfam, together with Amnesty International, the International Action Network on Small Arms (IANSA) and many other organizations across the world launched the Control Arms campaign. The aim of the campaign was to reduce armed violence and conflict through global controls on the arms trade, and the primary objective was an international Arms Trade Treaty. In April 2013, a decade of campaigning paid off as the Arms Trade Treaty, the world&rsquo;s first global treaty to regulate the transfer of conventional arms and ammunition, was adopted by overwhelming majority at the UN in New York, and opened for signature two months later. As of June 2014, the Arms Trade Treaty&nbsp;looks set to enter into force around a year after it opened for signature, which will make it one of the fastest ever multilateral treaties to become international law.</p> <p>This case study evaluates the Control Arms campaign in order to explore how change happens and help inform future active citizenship programme design and ways of working. This publication forms part of a series of <a href="http://www.oxfam.org.uk/activecitizenship">Active Citizenship Case Studies</a>.&nbsp;</p>en
