The ATT Network The ATT Network was launched in 2013 by the Geneva Forum and the Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP). It is now composed of the Graduate Institute’s Centre on Conflict, Development and Peacebuilding (CCDP), the GCSP, the Small Arms Survey, and the United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research (UNIDIR). It serves as an informal platform for information exchange, assisting ATT states parties, and promoting adherence to and effective implementation of the ATT.
