Red Flags and Red Diamonds

Red Flags and Red Diamonds: the warning signs and political drivers of arms trade corruption: This new report by Dr. Sam Perlo-Freeman (WPF, CAAT UK) builds on the work of World Peace Foundation’s Compendium of Arms Trade Corruption, a collection of more than 40 cases of corruption in the arms trade and the broader military sector. It discusses both the ‘red flags’ – the warning signs that help citizens, NGOs, governments, and those companies seeking to avoid corruption to identify and avoid corruption risks – and the ‘Red Diamonds’, the underlying politics and economics of the arms trade that create situations where companies and governments actively choose corruption at a high level.   Learn more about our Global Arms Trade and Corruption program.
