Small Arms and Light Weapons Control:In 2001 Voluntas began its work with Small Arms and Light Weapons amidst accusations that some countries in the Former Soviet Union were engaged in illicit arms transactions.  At our initiative and work, and in cooperation with our partner Saferworld, our work led to the destruction of surplus weapons stockpiles which potentially were sources of for this illegal trade.  Funded by the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office Voluntas organised regional workshops about arms trade transparency, compliance with the UN Programme of Action for the Arms Trade and Compliance with EU Code of Conduct for the Arms Trade. Our efforts in these areas has been successful.  We are currently engaged in the active promotion of the International Arms Trade Treaty (ATT).  We work at the international, national and grassroots levels in this pursuit.

If you would like further information about this programme or have any suggestions or questions please email us at   arms@voluntas.org.  We look forward to hearing from you.
