Defence industries in Arab states: players and strategies

Defence industries in Arab states: players and strategies

Chaillot Paper - No141 - 22 March 2017

Florence Gaub, Zoe Stanley-Lockman

This Chaillot Paper analyses how Arab states strive to achieve strategic, economic and symbolic goals through indigenous armaments production, with some countries in the region showing a new determination to become more self-reliant in this domain. The paper focuses in particular on how efforts undertaken by Arab states to develop national defence technological and industrial bases (DTIBs) entail new relationships with defence suppliers.
