Arms Export Regulations

Arms Export Regulations

by Ian Anthony (Editor)




Governments have a legal obligation to guarantee effective control over arms exports and to monitor and supervise the movement of arms to ensure they do not fall into unauthorized hands. This book provides a detailed description of how governments discharge this responsibility. Individual chapters describe national efforts to control arms transfer, concentrating on the existing legal framework to regulate arms exports. Multilateral arms transfer control regimes are discussed, including the United Nations, the Co-ordinating Committee for East-West Trade Policy (CoCom), the missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR), as well as the arms embargoes agreed upon by the Council of Ministers of the European Community.
