Research Report/Data: Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) Releases 2018 Yearbook
The Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) published their 2018 yearbook today.
From the SIPRI Website:
The Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) today launches the findings of SIPRI Yearbook 2018, which assesses the current state of armaments, disarmament and international security.
Key findings include the following: all the nuclear weapon-possessing states are developing new nuclear weapon systems and modernizing their existing systems; and the number of personnel deployed with peace operations worldwide continues to fall while the demand is increasing.
Three major SIPRI Yearbook 2018 data sets were pre-launched in 2017–18: the top 100 arms-producing companies (11 December 2017), international arms transfers (12 March 2018) and world military expenditure (2 May 2018).
