SIPRI seeks a Programme Director to establish a new research programme on the macro-economics of security and development.


Following the appointment of its new Director, SIPRI is set to expand its activities in the field of conflict and development, subject to additional funds being acquired.

The strategic aim of the new programme is to establish SIPRI as a global leader in the analysis of the economics of security and development, building on the traditional strengths of SIPRI in the collection, analysis and dissemination of policy-relevant security data, especially in the area of arms transfers, arms production and military spending.

Building on these existing data-sets in related programmes, the focus of the new programme is expected to be on macro-economic and public finance issues of conflict and development.
