Table of Contents

The Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) has released its annual assessment of armaments, disarmament, and international security in the SIPRI Yearbook 2024. The report highlights an increase in the number and types of nuclear weapons being developed, with the nine nuclear-armed states modernizing their arsenals and deploying new nuclear-armed or nuclear-capable weapon systems. Russia and the USA possess almost 90% of all nuclear weapons, while China is expanding its nuclear arsenal faster than any other country. Tensions over Ukraine and the Gaza wars have further weakened nuclear diplomacy, and the global security and stability are in increasing peril. The Yearbook also covers data and analysis on world military expenditure, international arms transfers, arms production, multilateral peace operations, and armed conflicts.
