This chapter evaluate the potential of the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) to reduce violations of international humanitarian law and human rights law. The chapter assesses the process and outcome of the negotiations of the ATT, the first international instrument that makes an explicit link between arms export and its potential consequences in terms of violations of international humanitarian law and human rights law. The authors present the negotiation history of the ATT, comparing it to other recent treaty negotiations within humanitarian disarmament, and discuss the association between international law and peace studies. The main aim of the chapter is to present the ATT’s provisions for regulating in which situations arms exports will be prohibited.
