As the world’s second largest economy, China has enormous political and economic influence. Its role as one of the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council, expansive One Belt One Road initiative (China's development campaign across Asia to stimulate trade economic growth) and growing trade in arms makes it a major player on matters relating to global security.  


Our work

Saferworld has been working with China since 2004. We work with Chinese companies operating in Africa and Asia to help them be more sensitive to issues that could cause tensions and violence within communities and to ensure that they do not fuel conflict but instead contribute to peace.

We also work with export control officials, researchers, government ministries and businesses to help them understand and comply with international regulations on the transfer of arms and dual-use items.
