SIPRI is pleased to release its Annual Review 2022 which takes a retrospective look at the Institute’s activities, achievements, publications, commentaries, events and news.

Throughout 2022, SIPRI continued to play a crucial role in the global dialogue on managing risks and promoting peace at a time when parallel crises of insecurity and environmental deterioration challenge global stability. The situation in Ukraine and the depth and breadth of environmental challenges are powerful reminders of the magnitude of the task at hand.

Examples of SIPRI’s activities in 2022 include: launching the major policy report Environment of Peace: Security in a New Era of Risk; exploring avenues to address the widening gap between nuclear disarmament and deterrence; advancing research on post-conflict reconstruction in the Nineveh Plains, Iraq, through cultural and religious practices; and enhancing women’s representation in multilateral peace operations.

SIPRI engaged with a diverse international audience through hybrid and in-person events, such as the 2022 Stockholm Forum on Peace and Development, on the theme ‘From a Human Security Crisis Towards an Environment of Peace’, and the seventh annual Stockholm Security Conference, which focused on current trends in conflict and warfare. In 2022, SIPRI’s work retained an international presence with global media organizations citing the Institute’s data and its researchers. In fact, throughout the year, SIPRI work was mentioned across 59 900 news articles and blogs from 140 countries.
