General for Children in Armed Conflict with voluntary contributions between 1998 and 2005. 76. With respect to the export of small arms, the following should be noted: since the entry into force of the Customs Treaty in 1924, Liechtenstein has formed a joint economic area with Switzerland. For this reason, numerous Swiss laws are applicable to Liechtenstein, especially those relating to the import, export, and transit of goods. The export of small arms and light weapons from Liechtenstein is governed by the Swiss Federal Law on War Materials of 13 December 1996 (SR 514.51) and the associated Ordinance on War Materials of 25 February 1998 (SR 514.511). 5 According to the War Materials Act, every export requires authorization. Article 5 of the Ordinance provides that the authorization of foreign transactions must take account of the internal situation of the destination country, in particular its respect for human rights and its renunciation of the use of child soldiers (article 5(b) of the Ordinance). ----- 5 The legislative texts can be accessed on the website in German, Italian, and French.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
