Abstract: Despite the growing policy demands, little attention is devoted to systematic investigation of the role of arms in internal armed conflict and mass killing. In order to fill the research gap, this paper presents a basis for policy evaluation and further research. Employing publicly available data on arms acquisitions, internal armed conflicts, and mass killings, we explore the pattern of the relationship among arms, internal armed conflicts, and mass killings in 100 post-colonial states between 1956 and 1998. Our study shows that arms acquisition and intensity of internal armed conflicts are positively associated with mass killing involvement, while the effects of each factor on mass killing are not identical. Considering the combination of arms acquisition with intensity of internal armed conflicts, our investigation discovers that there are complex patterns of the occurrence of intentional mass killings by governments.

"From Alienation to Involvement: Israel's Arms Control Policy and the Prospects of Arms Control Regimes in the Middle East in the Post Saddam Era" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Studies Association, Town & Country Resort and Convention Center, San Diego, California, USA, Mar 22, 2006 <Not Available>. 2019-05-23 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p98376_index.html>

Abstract: Israel's activities in the Arms Control (AC) and Disarmament field can be roughly divided into two periods. In the first period, from 1963 to the 1980s, Israel's policy was characterized by alienation and deep suspicion regarding any initiative targeted at limiting the spread of certain weapons or their control. A change in this attitude first became apparent following Israel?s 1981 strike against Iraq?s Osirak nuclear reactor due to the need to repel harsh international criticism. Yet, total transformation of Israeli policy would have to wait another decade. During the 1991 Madrid Conference, the ACRS working group intensified awareness of the significance of AC and Disarmament. By then, Israel's political leadership had fully recognized the need to integrate AC regimes and to clearly present Israel's stance in international forums.Israel's policy consequently shifted from alienation and passivity to activism on the conceptual and technical level. Israel has, however, become a global key player for two additional reasons: (a) Obstruction capabilities ?the putative capabilities of this ?6th nuclear power? in all realms of armament, arms production and supply to the global market give Israel the power to render almost any treaty ineffective; and (b) The Middle East linkage approach ? Although dyadic situations where one state's adherence to an AC arrangement is conditional on the adherence of another are quite common, in the case of Israel, one state?s adherence could become (or is) a necessary condition for the adherence of several other states to the same treaty. The official Arab's stance regarding the CWC is, of course, a pristine example to this.Notwithstanding Israel's growing importance in this area and as opposed to the extensive literature focusing on its policy of nuclear opacity, a marked lacuna can be observed in the literature regarding Israel's policy in other arenas of AC and Disarmament. Hence, the research goals are twofold. In the first stage, we are in the process of mapping and analyzing Israel?s AC steps in general while stressing those areas that have been neglected in the literature. In the second stage, we shall trace Arab perceptions on these issues and, based on our findings, propose some feasible alternatives to mitigate the current predicament. Despite Israel?s continuous stance on the NPT issue, regional developments ? primarily the US occupation of Iraq offer Israel and its neighbors new opportunities to resolve the current various deadlocks. The real question is, therefore, will Israel take advantage of those opportunities? The research is attempting to propose at least tentative answers to this question.

Abstract: This paper explains the impact of trade on arms transfers. The primary argument is as a state exports more to another state the volume of arms transferred to that state also increases. Weapons follow exports for two reasons. First, states will transfer arms in order to protect its export markets. Since conflict can disrupt trade, providing arms to the import market can help ensure security through deterrence. Second, states are concerned about the externalities of trade making them reluctant to provide arms to states that they import large amounts of goods from. This paper uses a two-stage time-series cross-section analysis of directed dyad data to determine the impact of trade on the establishment of an arms transfer relationship and the size of the relationship. By using a combination of a Heckman and Error Correction Model, this paper finds that states are more likely to transfer arms to states they export other goods to, but are less likely to transfer arms to states they import from. The volume of exports is also a predictor of the volume of arms transferred.
