This volume, the 42nd edition of the SIPRI Yearbook, features 37 experts from 19 countries. These experts chronicle and analyse the most important trends and developments in international security, armaments and disarmament over the past year, including such issues as armed conflict, multilateral peace operations, military expenditure, arms production, transfers of conventional arms, non-proliferation, arms control, and confidence- and security-building measures. As in recent editions of the SIPRI Yearbook, this year’s volume opens with a special feature chapter. Authored by Andrew Feinstein, Paul Holden and Barnaby Pace, the chapter examines corruption in the international arms trade. Along with his colleagues, Feinstein—an expert on corruptive practices in the arms trade and a former member of the South African Parliament—explains why the international arms trade is ‘uniquely and disproportionately infected with corruption’; spells out the negative impact such corruption has on open societies, the rule of law and national security; and puts forward recommendations for limiting arms trade corruption and its corrosive effects.
