Article 36 is a specialist non-profit organisation, focused on reducing harm from weapons.
A small and effective team of advocacy and policy experts based in the UK, we work in coalitions for new international legal and policy agreements. We bring our expertise and creativity to briefings, negotiations and strategically convened discussions.
We work together with civil society partners and governments to develop new policies and legal standards that prevent civilian harm from existing and emerging weapons technologies.
Our work is underpinned by rigorous, transparent and independent analysis of how weapons harm civilians, and how to reduce and prevent such harm.
Our team has more than a decade of experience in diplomatic negotiations and in developing practical, actionable policies.
We believe that international standards can respond to humanitarian concerns, and we recognise the power and importance of legal, political and social norms in influencing behaviour.
From framing humanitarian issues and shaping civil society responses, to convening key political meetings and presenting as experts in international treaty negotiations, we provide a critical voice on the role of weapons in our world.
