This summary highlights key points from the main report by Amnesty International of the same name. The main report describes irresponsible and poorly regulated trade and shows graphically through several illustrative cases how that trade contributes to serious violations of international human rights law and international humanitarian law (IHL) in different parts of the world. In particular, it seeks to help demonstrate why the establishment of a global ATT is an urgent necessity and how an ATT could work to save lives, preserve livelihoods and enhance respect for human rights.
