15 June, on the occasion of the launch of the SIPRI Yearbook 2015, SIPRI and the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs organised a launch event under the theme Peace operations, conflict management and the role of gender.

A panel of experts, together with the State Secretary for Foreign Affairs Ms Annika Söder, discussed the challenges of preventing and managing conflicts, the role of peace operations and the and importance of a gender sensitive approach in a globalized world.

The SIPRI Yearbook has been a trademark of the Institute almost from the start 50 years ago.  It contains in depth information and analysis on developments in armaments, disarmament and international security. Since the establishment by the Swedish Riksdag in 1966, SIPRI (Stockholm International Peace Research Institute) has consistently ranked high among the world’s think-tanks.
