The impact of the UK’s arms transfers and military spending on women’s rights

February 21, 2019

This is a joint report by Christian Aid, the Quakers in Britain and the WILPF UK to the CEDAW Committee, 72nd session (February 2019). It addresses concerns relating to the UK’s arms transfers to several countries, foremost among which is Saudi Arabia; and the UK’s increasing military spending and plans to update its nuclear arsenal, which are in sharp contrast with the deep cuts of public services undertaken in the name of austerity.  All these have a clear impact on the implementation of the Women, Peace and Security agenda, both externally and internally.
