The inaugural Forum on the Arms Trade annual conference, "Taking Aim: A Closer Look at the Global Arms Trade," is a half-day event that will take place at the Stimson Center on May 22, 2018. The conference will feature leading experts, journalists, and members of civil society and the government. Join us as we look into the effects of the global arms trade on human and national security, and discuss how the U.S. can better assess risk when transferring arms. 

Senator Chris Murphy (D-Connecticut) will kick-off the conference with a short speech and answer questions at noon.

The conference will conclude with a discussion with Guy Lawson, author of the award-winning book “Arms and the Dudes,” which was made into the feature film “War Dogs” and one of the dudes himself, David Packouz.
