Abstract

This research report is the result of a one-year project conducted by UNIDIR and Paul Holtom. The study has two related objectives: First, to identify which aspects of national end use/r control systems could feasibly be harmonized; and second, to explore the feasibility of, and potential frameworks for, a process to strengthen control systems and enhance cooperation to prevent diversion at the regional and/or global levels. It seeks to offer options for States to have a meaningful dialogue on potential areas for cooperation, shared understanding and possible alignment of measures to strengthen end use/r control systems. The report draws upon open-source materials and the results of a Survey distibuted to all UN member states and an informal meetings with government experts and arms industry representatives conducted during 2015.
