From Gaza to Ukraine to the South China Sea, the arms trade continues to have profound—and oftentimes devastating—implications for global peace, security and the economy. Join the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) and the Stimson Center for a discussion of recent trends in the global arms trade and the potential implications of arms transfers around the world. Using newly released SIPRI arms transfer data, this event will examine the current state of play in the global arms trade, highlighting recent arms transfer trends and their impacts.
