Event Details

CeASR Film Showing Event- Peace Programme

Speaker: Andrew Feinstein

Organiser: Dr Rachel Julian Director of CeASR

SHADOW WORLD film reveals the shocking realities of the global arms trade – the only business that counts its profits in billions and its losses in human lives.

This film showing event, launching the new CeASR Peace Programme, will be host to Andrew Feinstein; one of the world’s leading experts on the global arms trade and who wrote the book that the film is based on 'The Shadow World: Inside the Global Arms Trade'. 

Directed by Johan Grimonprez and in part based on Corruption Watch UK founder Andrew Feinstein’s globally acclaimed book 'The Shadow World: Inside the Global Arms Trade', the film reveals how the international trade in weapons – with the complicity of governments and intelligence agencies, investigative and prosecutorial bodies, weapons manufacturers, dealers and agents – fosters corruption, determines economic and foreign policies, undermines democracy and creates widespread suffering.

We are delighted that Andrew Feinstein will join us afterwards for a discussion and Q&A session about the issues raised in the film.

Andrew Feinstein is one of the world’s leading experts on corruption and the global arms trade. A frequent commentator on BBC, CNN and Al Jazeera, and The Guardian, his writing has been published by The New York Times, Der Spiegel, the Huffington Post, and many others. As the author of the book on which the film is based, he has guided the production team on the contemporary issues and history addressed in the film. Andrew is founding director of Corruption Watch UK, and is a former ANC Member of Parliament from South Africa where he served under Nelson Mandela.
