​There is a profound lack of public accountability in the defence and security sector. Not only is global military spending rising, overall it is rising fastest in those states with the lowest levels of transparency and accountability. Unless more is done to establish standards of good governance in defence, corruption risks will grow from weak arms export controls, undetailed defence budgets, and irresponsible agents and dealers.
