Global Militarization Index (GMI)

Security, armaments and development in recipient countries of German arms exports

The Global Militarization Index (GMI) not only depicts levels of global militarization but also documents the development since 1990. The GMI is financed by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). This year’s GMI shows, once more, that the Middle East is the highest militarized region in the world.
