Dual-use and arms trade control
SIPRI's Dual-use and Arms Trade Control Programme seeks to raise the quality of information on and awareness of the current state of national and multilateral export control systems. The programme contributes to the enhancement of dual-use and arms trade controls both within and outside the European Union through its publications and research, the development of tools and concepts, the conduct of seminars and other awareness-raising and capacity-building activities.
