Grosse Zusammenhänge aus der Sipri-Friedensforschung

Big questions arising from Sipri’s peace research.

In an informal-sounding interview, a researcher from the peace studies institute in Stockholm described some questions observers have about international weapons sales.

Why did Greece need to buy so many guns and tanks?

Why does Saudi Arabia need so many high-tech weapons?

Will China start massively manufacturing and exporting arms?

What new weapons technologies will Russia develop?

Is there a connection between India’s problems with corruption and its status as the world’s biggest arms importer? The research director at Sipri said India’s biggest arms deal scandals involved companies from western countries.

I have some questions myself:

Is it a problem that the French government controls so many French arms manufacturers?
