At the core of much of SIPRI’s work, and particularly the work to update its Military Expenditure Database, is the question of transparency. In issues of national and international security, transparency remains an issue of great importance, not least because of the opportunity for abuse from authorities that a lack of transparency provides.1 This section examines patterns in the availability of military expenditure data, based on SIPRI’s own data collection efforts, as well as trends in availability over time and patterns between different types of countries.
