Together with the Asia-Europe People’s Forum (AEPF), GCOMS is organizing a webinar on Military Spending and Global (in)Security, which is part of a wider shared strategy to put military budgets and spending priorities in the agenda.

The webinar will also serve as a presentation of the book edited by Jordi Calvo: ‘Military Spending and Global Security. Humanitarian and Environmental Perspectives’. The book will be published on November 26 by Routledge and will give context to the discussion at hand by contributing a reflection on why people are not well served by nation-states when they continuously seek to out-compete one another in the size and destructive powers of their militaries. Similarly, the webinar will also deal with the scope of military spending around the world, while explaining how militarism is linked with conflict and security threats, and how military spending prevent us from adequately dealing with global problems such as climate change or the COVID-19 pandemic.
