Studies undertaken to date suggest that the arms trade contributes substantially to global incidents of corruption. This prejudices purchasing and seller countries in financial and political terms, inasmuch as corruption corrodes democratic practice. A number of factors explain this infection, ranging from the secrecy imparted from involvement with national security protocols to opaque international networks that defy localized investigation. Key transactions, such as in South Africa, illustrate these concerns. While solutions are hard to find, a multinational arms trade treaty that includes corruption and bribery clauses would constitute a major step forward.
