Today, we are launching a new website that presents a series of interactive graphics, enabling our visitors to explore answers to the question, who arms war?
Based on Sam Perlo-Freeman’s research that was published as a report last year, “Business As Usual: How Major Weapons Exporters Arms the World’s Conflicts,” (World Peace Foundation, 2022), the new site allows visitors to explore the key data through graphics presenting sales to 32 conflict zones and overviews of the sales patterns of the top 11 weapons producing countries. Below, Perlo-Freeman provides an introduction to the site.
