Founded in 1966, SIPRI is a research institute with an established profile in the fields of arms transfers, arms control, and non-proliferation. Maritime shipping and air cargo companies are a key constituency in proliferation risk reduction strategies that involve the private sector. Most attention to date has focused on U.S. maritime shipping and air cargo companies, and there is a relative absence of initiatives designed to meet the needs of companies in the Middle East and Asia. This SIPRI project will develop recommendations for foreign maritime shipping and air transport service facilitators in the Middle East and East Asia.
