Overview

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.
