Study Group on Defense Industry Globalization, Conversion, and the Arms Trade

Director: Ann R. Markusen
September 1, 1996 - May 1, 1998

Conversion and rationalization of arms production capacity and the successful transition to lower armament levels have emerged as central determinants of international security. This study group focused on an international comparative analysis of "supply-side resistance" to successful downsizing and searched for national and multilateral strategies for countering such resistance. Session topics included national security, arms proliferation, industrial-base management, and economic prosperity. An edited volume, based on the study group's proceedings, will be published in the second half of 1999.
