Established in 1966, SIPRI is consistently ranked as one of the world's top think tanks. The institute is dedicated to independent research into peace, conflict and security and is known worldwide for its flagship publication, the SIPRI Yearbook, and its databases. SIPRI is based in Stockholm with presences in Beijing and Washington, DC, and well-established, on-the-ground partnerships and operational networks across the globe. The staff of SIPRI is international and the working language is English. In recent years SIPRI has expanded its staff and budget while building a dynamic research and outreach agenda that reflects the fast-changing international security order.
