Join us for our first ever Reading Group series! Following our ‘Arms Trade 101 and intersecting issues’ panel, we will delve deeper into some of the profound issues connected to the global arms trade over the course of 6 weeks with the help of some of the UK’s brightest critical thinkers.
Starting by setting the landscape with an overview of the arms trade by CAAT’s very own Andrew Smith, we will move through the weeks grappling with issues including the UK’s arming of Saudi Arabia and the devastating effects on Yemen; militarised policing, borders and migration, capitalism, colonialism as well as drawing connections between the current pandemic and the arms trade.
