Ad hoc assistance workshop for Thailand

Ad hoc assistance workshop for Thailand

ATT-OP II

Event date: 14/03/2018 - 15/03/2018

On 14-15 March, BAFA, co-implementer of the second phase of the ‘EU Arms Trade Treaty Outreach Project’ (EU ATT-OP II) organised an ad-hoc assistance workshop or the Kingdom of Thailand.

This workshop was organised upon request of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Thailand. The thematic of this workshop encompassed the legislation, implementation and enforcement of brokering controls under the ATT.

During the two-day workshop, experts from Germany, Ireland, St. Lucia and Sweden discussed together with representatives from the Kingdom of Thailand the current status of Thailand’s national legislations as well as challenges and opportunities in updating them in preparation for a future ATT ratification with regard to arms brokering controls. A comparison between different national and regional legislations as well as best practice examples in enforcement for detecting and countering brokering activities led to broader conclusions for effective implementation and enforcement techniques.

The workshop ended with presentations on regional efforts in arms transfer controls. The experts provided introductions into the CARICOM region and international regimes with regard to arms brokering controls. The conclusion reached was that a regional approach at the ASEAN level would be crucial in order to close loopholes and effectively prevent illicit brokering activities.

At the end of the workshop, valuable insights and ideas were exchanged and possible ways for the further process of ATT ratification were discussed.

The EU project implemented by BAFA brought together 20 representatives of national ATT stakeholders from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Defence, Ministry of Commerce, Ministry of Interior, Ministry of Finance, Royal Thai Police, Office of the National Security Council, the Office of the Attorney General, Office of the Council of State, Defence Industry and Energy Centre Equipment Control and Industry Development Division and the Thai Customs Department.
