The Arms Trade Resource Center, is a project of research and public education on preventative diplomacy and the control of international arms transfers that seeks to promote new U.S. policies appropriate to the realities of the post-Cold War world.

The Arms Trade Resource Center was established in 1993 to engage in public education and policy advocacy aimed at promoting restraint in the international arms trade. The Center performs research on the U.S. weapons trade and U.S. arms sales policy, and it publishes reports, magazine articles, and op-ed pieces on the issue. We also serve as a resource for the media, citizen’s organizations, members of Congress, and Executive Branch policymakers.
