As the second decade of the 21st century ended, there was little sign of relief from the generally disturbed and concerning state of international security that has characterized it. Recent editions of the annual review by SIPRI of developments in armaments, disarmament, arms control and security—of which this is the 51st edition—have set out the evidence of that deterioration in the conditions for international stability. Not all developments across the years have been negative. Some elements of international cooperation—a major precondition for stability—remain in place, functional and vibrant. However, while an overall judgement of how the evidence weighs up necessarily contains aspects of subjectivity, it is a widely shared view that the deterioration continued in 2019.1
