Small Arms Exporter Policies Towards Syria, 2011-2013

Several regional organizations and exporters listed in Table 4.10 introduced arms embargoes in 2011 in response to the Syrian civil war.

The EU imposed an arms embargo on Syria on 9 May 2011, Turkey in November 2011, and the League of Arab States in December 2011 (Al Jazeera, 2011b; EU, 2011; League of Arab States, 2011).

There have been repeated calls for a UN arms embargo on Syria and a draft UN Security Council resolution to that effect was circulated in mid-2011 (Lauria and Malas, 2011) (24)…

(24) For example, the UN Human Rights Council independent international commission of inquiry on Syria recommended in August 2014 'that the international community impose an arms embargo' on Syria (UNHRC, 2014, para. 146(a)).
