Rete Italiana per il Disarmo (Italian Network on Disarmament) and European Network Against Arms Trade (ENAAT)
Workshop will underline problems linked to the increasing military spending for weapons procurement. We will show how money devoted to Armies is a bad choice in the times of economic crisis and what would be the real good investments. Starting from the perspective of Peace Economics, this is connected to the resolution of conflicts using the approach of Positive Peace. Workshop will highlight a problematic political shift at EU level, as the latter is about to decide that for the first time EU public funds can be directly used to fund arms and the military to the detriment of other crucial policies.
