The war in Ukraine has caused a dramatic acceleration of arms transfer decisions in Europe and the United States, which is taking place alongside other dynamics affecting the supply of major arms worldwide.

The Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) and the Stimson Center hosted a virtual event to discuss recent trends in international arms transfers and their implications. The event showcased newly released SIPRI data, examined the interrelation between global arms trade dynamics and world events, and considered the consequences for global peace and security and international relations.
