Myths of the Global Arm Race: A Reading and Discussion of Indefensible: Seven Myths that Sustain the Global Trade

Bob and Sheila Hoerle Lecture Hall, Room UL105, University Center
General Public 

How does the arms industry sustain itself, and what should we expect from this new era, when defense industry stocks are skyrocketing and Trump calls for an arms race with Russia? Join us for the release of Indefensible: Seven Myths that Sustain the Global Trade, the definitive primer on the global arms industry. Come hear the editor and authors explain how, far from protecting us, the arms trade undermines our security by fanning the flames of war, terrorism, and global instability. Indefensible not only reveals the complex dangers associated with the arms trade but offers positive ways in which we can combat the arms trade’s malignant influence, reclaim our democracies, and reshape our economies in the interests of peace and human well-being.

Speakers include Paul Holden, editor; William D. Hartung (Center for International Policy); Sam Perlo-Freeman (World Peace Foundation). Moderated by: Peter J. Hoffman (The New School).

 

This event is sponsored by Global Studies, the Graduate Program in International Affairs, and the Center for International Policy.
