The Control Arms Interim Board, established in November 2019, includes members of the previous Control Arms Board as well as new members chosen by Control Arms coalition members from each of the world’s regions. The Interim Board’s purpose is to provide leadership and oversight to Control Arms, support the staff team and implement a process to establish a new Board, working in partnership with the wider Coalition.

Ivan Marques, upon being elected chairperson of the Interim Board, commented:

“All Interim Board members are working hard during the current strategic review of Control Arms to build a better and stronger coalition. One which is more inclusive, transparent and able to help members take action where it is most needed to prevent the proliferation and misuse of conventional arms, and to reduce armed violence.”
