Annual Review 2023

SIPRI is pleased to launch Annual Review 2023, which takes a retrospective look at the Institute’s activities and achievements during the year.

As the international system grappled with a myriad of challenges in 2023, SIPRI maintained a key role in providing data and analysis. With the Russia–Ukraine war and the Israeli–Palestinian conflict impacting issues from ecology and militarization to arms control, SIPRI’s contribution to the global conversation became increasingly vital.

Annual Review 2023 is structured into themes that cover a wide scope of security-focused topics. Each two-page spread describes SIPRI’s work on these topics and includes a list of activities ranging from publications and commentary pieces to films and events. Topics include: the intersection of food, security and conflict; the war in Ukraine; global armaments; conflict and security in West Africa; and artificial intelligence and cybersecurity. It also includes a detailed breakdown of SIPRI’s global media impact which, in 2023, saw coverage in over 70 000 news articles (compared to 59 000 in 2022) across 140 countries.
