The 2oth Century was a century of war. The 21st Century must not repeat this tragedy.

–Yasuhiro Nakasone

Thank you for visiting The 21st Century Asian Arms Race (21AAR). This website serves as a resource for conflict and security related information specific to Eurasia and the Asia-Pacific.

21AAR was founded in June 2011 by Miguel Miranda.

Since geopolitics and the international arms trade spans regions and societies 21AAR’s focus is not always confined to its core subject matter.

This is because the critical details underpinning the shape and form of hard power exercised by modern states are often elusive and ambiguous. Uncovering these details requires keen instincts and a historical perspective.

With evolution as its driving force, advanced weapons and modern governments are transforming in unexpected and fascinating ways. 21AAR tries to makes sense of this process as history unravels across the web.

Having articulated the purpose of 21AAR feel free to either bookmark, follow, or be mesmerized by the unfolding action. Comments and feedback are welcome as long as they are constructive.

21AAR welcomes institutions who wish to share pertinent details about their latest events and conferences. Requests for coverage will be entertained as well.
