This, the 51st edition of the SIPRI Yearbook, was finalized against the background of the unfolding and multidimensional impact of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. At the time of writing, the world is in the midst of a global public health emergency on a scale not seen for a century—over 4 million cases of infection and over 300 000 deaths, according to statistics that are almost uniformly agreed to be incomplete. The consequences are far-reaching in economic, social and political terms, and, in the longer term, probably also their cultural and social psychological ramifications. The pandemic has exacerbated existing geopolitical struggles, prompting a disinformation war that has drawn in China, Russia, the United States and other powers.
