The Global Arms Trade: A Lecture by Andrew Feinstein

Andrew Feinstein is a member of Corruption Watch UK and a former South-African parliamentarian on behalf of the ANC. His book on the arms trade, The Shadow World is a good introduction to a murky global world, some of whose protagonists are Dutch. He presents a complex story and its associated statistics in a manner that is easy, if somewhat disturbing, to read. The book was endorsed by Archbishop Desmond Tutu (to whom the university awarded an honorary doctorate in 2012).

Unlike many of its UK counterparts, the University of Groningen does not have direct investments in military companies.
