The Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) is the world’s first binding instrument acknowledging and establishing obligations regarding the link between arms transfers and violence against children (VAC). This practical guide aims to enable states to conduct thorough national assessments of export risks related to VAC. The guide provides criteria, indicators, and credible information sources that can be integrated into export risk evaluations for VAC. By assisting licensing officers in identifying pertinent information for VAC risk assessment, the guide aims to facilitate well-informed decision-making on export applications in accordance with their ATT obligations.
