Join as an Organization


Control Arms is a gobal coalition of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) working for the reduction of armed violence and conflict. In particular, we advocate for greater controls in the international arms trade to end the human suffering caused by the irresponsible arms trade, and to stop arms transfers that fuel conflict, systemic armed violence, poverty and serious violations of human rights and international humanitarian law.

Control Arms works to change the policy and practice of governments and organisations towards these aims, and raise awareness of the problem amongst the public.

Call To Action

The Control Arms coalition calls for:

  • A robust Arms Trade Treaty to stop transfers when there is a substantial risk that the arms or ammunition are likely to be used in serious violations of international humanitarian law or international human rights law, or fuel armed violence and undermine socio-economic development.
  • A legally-binding Arms Trade Treaty that holds governments accountable to existing standards of international law and the UN Charter.
  • A global, comprehensive treaty that includes all conventional weapons and ammunition, all transfers and all transactions.
  • An enforceable treaty that includes detailed guidelines for full implementation, reporting, international cooperation, compliance and accountability.
