Global Military spending has risen – I look at why

From the crisis in Ukraine, to heightened tensions in the South China sea & the spread of Islamic State across the middle-east, on top of the continuing Boko Haram insurgency, 2015 was a year of major conflict.

In the same year, military spending across the world increased for the first time in four years.

I investigated the figures, the reasons behind the increase with Sam-Perlo Freeman of SIPRI (The Stockholm International Peace Research Institute) & looked at military budgets from the perspective of Christian peace charity FoR (The Fellowship of Reconciliation)
