The project focuses on the development and maintenance of a federated system of individual databases at different geographical locations, accessible through a single integrated user platform. The objective is to offer professionals in the field and in related sciences, such as researchers, politicians and the media, an organized authoritative and structured factual reference system in the form of country profiles.
The SIPRI database on peace operations provides comprehensive, reliable and authoritative data on all multilateral peace operations (both UN and non-UN) conducted around the world.
The SIPRI Arms Transfers Database contains information on all transfers of major conventional weapons from 1950 to the most recent full calendar year. It is a unique resource for researchers, policy-makers and analysts, the media and civil society interested in monitoring and measuring the international flow of major conventional arms.
