Viability of a Humanitarian Tax on the International Arms Trade

Can we fund humanitarian projects with a tax on the arms trade?

Drawing on conceptions of global justice and economic models, as well as international legal and humanitarian norms, this project considers if an international arms trade taxation scheme could finance humanitarian responses and reduce the volume of arms transfers.

This one-year project concluded in Summer 2019. It resulted in a major research paper and a number of presentations. Some work continues on this topic, and interested persons are welcome to contact Rhonda Ferguson with inquiries.
