Defence and Peace Economics embraces all aspects of the economics of defence, disarmament, conversion and peace. Examples include the study of alliances and burden-sharing; military spending in developed and developing nations; arms races; terrorism; country surveys; the impact of disarmament on employment and unemployment; the prospects for conversion and the role of public policy in assisting the transition; the costs and benefits of arms control regimes; the arms trade; economic sanctions; the role of the United Nations. Further topics can be grouped around efficiency issues including budgeting, the military production function, procurement policies, defence industries, military manpower, internal markets in the armed forces and public choice issues. Contributions can be theoretical or policy-oriented; and they might be based on case studies or projects, countries or industries. Whilst the emphasis will be on economics articles, good quality contributions from other relevant and related disciplines will be considered, as too will articles from industrialists, practitioners and policy-makers.
