Ploughshares’ data and public debate

Conventional Weapons, News

Project Ploughshares has been tracking Canadian military exports since its founding in 1976. It is painstaking work done mostly in the background.

The purpose for collecting the data is to provide concrete examples on where military export policies or their implementation should be improved so that human rights and other humanitarian concerns are foremost in decision-makers minds.

The recent flare of public attention on the sale of Canadian-made light armoured vehicles to Saudi Arabia, which featured interviews with Ploughshares staff, illustrates how solid, persistent research creates the opportunity for influencing public debate when the moment arrives.
