How do we ensure transparency of arms exports in South East Europe? Just launched: Regional Arms Export Reports 2015, 2016

Based on a unified method for data collection and reporting, the Regional Arms Export Reports 2015, 2016 contain information on conventional arms exports of Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia, and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia covering years 2015 and 2016. The reports are the result of over a decade of regional cooperation and commitment to transparency by Western Balkans governments willing to commonly share their arms exports data making the region the second in the world, after the European Union (EU), to publish such report.

Data from the reports have been used in analysis conducted by Reuters, the New York Times, Balkan Insight.

The Regional Arms Export Report is a knowledge product developed by SEESAC in partnership with governments in South East Europe and financed by the European Union within the framework  of EU Council Decision (CFSP) 2016/2356
