Apart from Russia’s war in Ukraine and the civil war in Sudan, there are armed conflicts in 55 other countries. Geopolitical tensions are intensifying both at the global level and in key volatile regions such as the Gulf. In addition, the pressure of climate change is increasing and the food insecurity crisis is sharpening.

Join SIPRI’s international Governing Board in a conversation on how to untangle this complexity and where to start.
