The Centre for Peace, Security and Armed Violence Prevention [CPS-AVIP] participated at the Executive Education Course on the implementation of the Arms Trade Treaty organised by the Geneva Centre for Security Policy [GCSP] and hosted by the African Centre for Peace and Security Training (ACPST) in Addis Abba/Ethiopia from 9th to 13th November 2015.
The course aimed to provide training to government officials involved in the implementation of the Arms Trade Treaty in French speaking African countries. The initiative has been helpful in order to meet the needs of African signatories and parties to the Treaty on how to implement its provisions effectively.
The goal of the course was to contribute to fulfilling the main objectives of the Arms Trade Treaty by establishing common international standards for regulating the global trade in conventional arms and preventing and eradicating the illicit trade in and diversion of conventional arms.
