SIPRI Arms embargo archive

This archive contains information on all multilateral arms embargoes that have been implemented by an international organization, such as the EU or UN, or by a group of nations. It includes both legally binding embargoes and those that are solely political commitments. It provides details of the aims, scope and amendments to all arms embargoes that are in force, or have been in force since 1998 and to most that were in force since 1950. The archive is constantly updated to include information on new arms embargoes or significant modifications to existing arms embargoes.
