Arms Trade Dialogue


With a dozen colleagues I am initiating confidential dialogues with the key people involved in arms manufacture and sales, starting in the UK, engaging them in a discussion on “Future Security for the UK”. , observing that the main issues of concern today arise from terrorism, climate change, migration, the rich-poor gap and cyber attack – and none of these is suited to a conventional armed response. The implications for their scenario planning and future products, as well as the need to plan for diversification will be aired, and this could result in a publication co-authored with some of the major players in the field.
