Arms conversion for a sustainable society
Reductions in military spending often have significant impacts on employment in the science and technology sectors, as well as on the wider economy and society. These impacts can generally be mitigated through increases in investment and employment in civilian sectors, such as the environmental/ low carbon sectors. SGR has published analysis and commentary on these issues for many years, which you can find in this section of our website. This complements our work on the military influence on science and technology.
