There are many ways to target the arms trade at your university. Arms companies are linked to universities in three main ways, recruitment, research and investment, and the Universities Network campaigns on all three. If you’re looking for inspiration or ideas on where to target your campaigning have a look through our campaign ideas below.
Ban BAE – kick arms companies off campus: Make it difficult for arms companies to recruit graduates on your campus by protesting their attendance of careers events. Lobby your university’s or department’s careers service to change their policy on who they invite onto your campus.
University Clean Investment Campaign: End your university’s support for the arms trade through their investments.
Study War No More: Campaign for transparency about university research funding and an end to arms company influence.
