On this blog we will publish about ArmsTradeWatch and research projects using our database, done ourselves or by others. Further we will provide news about other interesting research on arms trade, experiences and reflections on data research, point to interesting data sources and methods to use them, and so on. If you like to stay updated, you can register for our mailing list.

In this first text we introduce ArmsTradeWatch, a new data project to map out the European arms industry and arms trade. This database provides an inventory of companies in Europe active on the defense market or exporting arms.
