This report published by Conflict Armament Research examines the use of a Diversion Analysis Framework (DAF), an analytical tool designed to help unpack the problem of diversion. The Framework is part of a wider research project through which the 3 partner organisations hope to support Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) States Parties in understanding the impact of the Treaty in addressing diversion risks associated with arms transfers.  It draws on findings from CAR field investigations of weapon diversion in conflict-affected locations to illustrate how the DAF can be applied to real-world cases.  These studies also explore what measures States that have been involved in such cases have introduced to create or strengthen an ‘enabling environment’ to better prevent, mitigate, and address cases of diversion.

Any modest contributions for my time and ongoing expenses are welcomed!  I have a page where you can do so, and where one-off contributions start as low as $3, at
