SIPRI produces a variety of videos to cater for different viewing preferences and to serve as an alternative platform to provide insights on peace and security. With events as a core component of SIPRI’s outreach, livestreams and recordings of SIPRI’s conferences and seminars are regularly produced.  


SIPRI Conversations

The SIPRI Conversations series is a collection of conversational-style interviews in which Stephanie Blenckner, SIPRI Director of Communications, talks to a range of experts on topics related to conflict, peace and security. The aim of the series is to highlight issues pertaining to peace and security from an insider's perspective and provide further insight into the projects, methodologies and data that SIPRI experts work with.

The Spotlight series is a collection of short, on the spot interviews, captured on occasions where individuals have visited SIPRI for various events, seminars and workshops or have engaged in external SIPRI activities. The aim of the series is to capture an array of angles and viewpoints that will stimulate further discussions to better understand the conditions for peaceful solutions of international conflicts and for a stable peace.

The series features an array of individuals, including academics, civil society representatives, diplomats, government officials and researchers.

Through these playlists, SIPRI strives to bring regional perceptions, voices and views to the global debate.
