Regional Implementation of UNSCR 1540
This chapter explores the implementation of the resolution through a regional lens. Doing so provides useful insights for a number of reasons. First, it allows for trends to be identified within regions, between different states’ implementation, and allows for consideration as to whether states have been working together to overcome implementation challenges. Second, regional security and broader dynamics may have impacted negatively on implementation and thus should be explored. Third, looking at 1540 implementation through a regional lens allows for comparison between progress in implementation, as well as challenges and successes. Potentially this can help provide broader insights into what has and has not worked.
