The SIPRI Yearbook, written by authors who are experts in their field, is an essential and independent source for issues on armaments and arms control, conflicts and resolutions, security arrangements and disarmament, as well as longer-term trends in international security.
SIPRI is an independent international institute dedicated to research into conflict, armaments, arms control and disarmament. The institute was established in 1966, and provides data, analysis and recommendations, based on open sources, to policymakers, researchers, media and the interested public.
Its vision, of "a world in which sources of insecurity are identified and understood, conflicts are prevented or resolved, and peace is sustained", informs all aspects of the institute's research and publishing activity.
