The IPB World Congress 2016 will be prepared by arranging several national/ regional meetings dealing with specific topics within the whole complex of issues. We will encourage those organizing events within the framework of the Global Day of Action on Military Spending (GDAMS 6) , taking place in mid-April 2016, to structure them so as to contribute to the World Congress.

Apart from GDAMS, we expect to be supporting preparatory activities in major centres such as Brussels, Geneva, Leeds, London, Barcelona, Omit NY, Moscow, Nairobi, Lagos, New York, Nairobi, Lagos, New Delhi, Buenos Aires, Tokyo, Oslo, and smaller cities also.
