Summary of Trends in International Arms Transfers, 2014
Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (Sipri) © 2014
The Stockholm International Peace Research Institute examines trends in international arms trading from 2009 to 2013.
In recent years, many countries have actively engaged in the development and exchange of major weapons. Reporting for the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), authors Siemon T. Wezeman and Pieter D. Wezeman reveal trends in the arms industry and list the major exporters and importers of arms between 2009 and 2013. Although they provide sufficient numerical data, the SIPRI report stops short of explaining the implications of these trends for international relations and global peace. Always politically neutral, getAbstract recommends this fact sheet to policymakers, peace activists and those who take particular interest in international relations.
In this summary, you will learn
- What the trends and issues in global arms transfer look like
- Which countries were the largest exporters of major weapons from 2009 to 2013
- Which countries were the largest importers of major weapons in those years
