This report complements the call for the inclusion of gender-based violence within the Arms Trade Treaty by Amnesty International, IANSA Women’s Network, Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom and Religions for Peace International. It details the issue of gender-based violence and language needed in the treaty. It also sets out how the threshold to determine the risk of an arms transfer leading to the perpetration or facilitation of gender-based violence can be identified by licensing agencies and which mechanisms can promote women’s rights as part of national-level implementation of the treaty
