Global Arms Trade & Flow by Mustafa Saifee, Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture

In 2016, around 31 075 Million US$ (SIPRI Trend Indicator Value at constant 1990 prices) worth of arms were traded all around the world. In 2015, this figure was 28 448 Million US$. In 2016, this figure reached the highest value in past 26 years.

This project allows us to explore arms trade and flow in detail over time. We use the data provided by Stockholm International Peace Research Institute to try to find international relations and trends in the arms trade.
