In the wake of the Court of Appeal ruling that UK arms sales to Saudi Arabia are illegal given war crimes in Yemen, we talk to expert Andrew Feinstein about his life exposing the global sale of arms.

Join us as we discuss:

  • How the arms trade is culturally depicted and widely perceived
  • Connections between the arms trade, government, universities, industry and civil society
