Background

Activity description
As part of the ‘EUP2P export control programme for arms-ATT’ (EUP2P-ATT), the ad hoc legal workshop in Togo was held in Lomé on 25-27 October 2016. The meeting of jurists followed a preceding activity organised in October 2015 and was dedicated to analysing and developing the Togolese legislation according to its obligations stemming from the ATT. Experts from Peru, France, Belgium, Senegal and Burkina Faso contributed to the workshop.

Project description
The ‘EUP2P export control programme for arms-ATT’, also known as the EU ATT Outreach Project (ATT-OP), provided assistance to non-EU countries between April 2014 and April 2017 to contribute to the effective implementation of the ATT. The programme was co-financed by the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany under Council Decision 2013/768/CFSP. The programme assisted a number of non-EU countries, upon their request, in strengthening their arms transfer systems in line with the requirements of the Treaty and also engaged in an effort to reach out to countries not yet party to the Treaty.
