Policy brief ‘Strengthening information-exchange on arms exports’

Publication date: 22/11/2018

The Flemish Peace Institute launches a new publication format: its first policy brief. In these policy briefs, the Institute aims to combine an in depth and thorough analysis with a set of specific recommendations to address the findings and conclusions of this analysis.

In the new policy brief entitled ‘strengthening EU arms export controls through increased information exchange’, Diederik Cops, researcher at the Flemish Peace Institute, discusses several specific initiatives to be taken in the context of the current review on the implementation and the fulfilment of the objectives of the EU’s Common Position on arms exports. In this policy brief, we first describe and contextualize this review process. In a second step, specific suggestions and recommendations are identified to strengthen the exchange of information on arms exports, both in public reporting instruments and between member states.
