Small Arms Survey Podcast #37: Monitoring UN Arms Embargoes: Observations from Panels of Experts (Part 1)
A new report from the Small Arms Survey assesses the operational challenges facing UN panels of experts, and in particular the arms experts that sit on those panels, in their work to monitor UN arms embargoes. The report, based on interviews with sitting and former experts from panels covering embargoes in Cote d’Ivoire, DRC, Eritrea, Libya, Somalia, and Sudan, also describes methods and tools that panels are evolving to more effectively implement their mandate. In the first of this two-part interview, lead author Emile LeBrun describes the evolving roles of panels of experts, the objectives and methods of the study undertaken, and some of the key findings.
