Established in 1990, it provides rigorous, objective, evidence-based research on the manufacture, trade, and use of, military, security and police (MSP) equipment. Such technologies range from small arms and light weapons to large weapon systems; from policing technologies and prison equipment to equipment used for torture, amongst others.
It aims to:
-Monitor the international MSP trade in the pursuit of transparency and accountability;
-Provide campaigning organisations with timely and accurate case study information to lobby for tougher controls on international MSP transfers;
-Work with NGOs and media agencies to expose companies and governments that flout regulations on transfers of arms and security equipment; and
-Provide torture survivor support groups with the information that allows them to seek legal redress from the companies producing such equipment.
