Past Events
The Shadow World: Inside the Global Arms Trade

Event Date:
November 7, 2011
The Open Society Foundations hosted a New York launch of The Shadow World: Inside the Global Arms Trade with author and former Open Society Fellow Andrew Feinstein.
In this discussion, Feinstein and two other experts on weapons sales provide a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the worldwide arms bazaar and trace its corrosive effect on democracy and the rule of law. The deadly collusion among politicians, weapons makers, arms dealers, and the military are examined, as well as the trial of notorious arms merchant Victor Bout and the prospects for a new arms trade treaty.
  • Andrew Feinstein, author, The Shadow World: Inside the Global Arms Trade, and former Open Society Fellow
  • Kathi Austin, executive director of Conflict Awareness Project
  • Jeff Abramson, coordinator of the Control Arms Secretariat
Stephen Hubbell, senior public affairs officer for the Open Society Fellowship, introduces the event.
