Panel Discussion: Military Spending in Northeast Asia
May 3, 2010 @ 10:00 pm - May 4, 2010 @ 12:00 am
The world spent $1.5 trillion on the military in 2008. Nearly 70 percent of that money was spent by the countries involved in the Six Party Talks (United States, China, Russia, Japan, South Korea, and North Korea). The region of Northeast Asia is full of conflict. It is also full of the world’s most sophisticated weapons. And all of the countries are adding to these arsenals every day.
Come hear Northeast Asian organizations PSPD, Peace Network, and Peace Boat, along with IPS, discuss this major problem of skyrocketing military spending and what you can do about it.
