As discussed in section I, the rise of Islamic State (IS) in the interlinked conflicts in Iraq and Syria resulted in several strategies by external actors specifically aimed at dealing with IS. This section draws on SIPRI’s longstanding research on international arms transfers and explores the ways in which such transfers were used as an emergency measure to try to contain and roll back the advance of IS in Iraq.
