Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT) in the UK works to end the international arms trade.
The arms business has a devastating impact on human rights and security, and damages economic development. Large scale military procurement and arms exports only reinforce a militaristic approach to international problems.
In seeking to end the arms trade, CAAT’s priorities are:
CAAT considers that security needs to be seen in much broader terms that are not dominated by military and arms company interests. A wider security policy would have the opportunity to reallocate resources according to actual threats and benefits, including addressing major causes of insecurity such as inequality and climate change.
CAAT values the diversity of opinion amongst its supporters and is committed to nonviolence in all its work.
CAAT’s Universities Network is a member of the Peace Education Network
