Join leading experts in this event, which will seek to answer two main questions: 1) Are arms exports the best way to create jobs in the United States?; and 2) How should the administration and the Congress balance economic, strategic, and human rights factors to ensure that U.S. arms exports are serving U.S. and global security interests?
 
This event is co-hosted by the Security Assistance Monitor and Forum on the Arms Trade. Media are especially encouraged to attend.
