Informe de SETEM Catalunya i Centre Delàs: "De la Banca Armada a la Banca Ètica. Cap a una coherència de polítiques i una cultura de pau. El cas de l'Ajuntament de Barcelona"

Portada BancaArmada BancaEtica CATDe la Banca Armada a la Banca Ètica. Cap a una coherència de polítiques i una cultura de pau. El cas de l'Ajuntament de Barcelona.

Aquest nou informe, elaborat per SETEM Catalunya i el Centre Delàs d'Estudis per la Pau, es centra en els vincles entre l'Ajuntament de Barcelona i els bancs de la Banca Armada (aquells sobre els quals tenim dades per assegurar que financen empreses del sector armamentista). En aquest estudi ens preguntem si l’Ajuntament de Barcelona, malgrat que és una de les administracions públiques que ha mostrat voluntat política per apostar per la pau, els drets humans i la justícia global, permet que la gestió financera de les principals activitats que requereixen d’un banc recaigui en mans d’entitats financeres que mitjançant les seves inversions puguin tenir impactes negatius en la pau i els drets humans. El cas del finançament de la indústria militar és un bon exemple d’aquesta possible incoherència de polítiques. L'informe remarca la importància de que l’administració incorpori l’ètica a totes les polítiques públiques, fins i tot en la gestió econòmica i en el finançament

Expanding the fortress. The policies, the profiteers and the people shaped by EU's border externalisation programme

Written by Centre Delàs on . Posted in Informes

The EU has made migration control a central goal of its foreign relations, rapidly expanding border externalisation measures that require neighbouring countries to act as Europe's border guards. The report "Expanding the fortress. The policies, the profiteers and the people shaped by EU's border externalisation programme", published by Transnational Institute (TNI), Stop Wapenhandel and Delàs Centre of Studies for Peace, examines 35 countries, prioritised by the EU, and finds authoritarian regimes emboldened to repress civil society, vulnerable refugees forced to turn to more dangerous and deadly routes, and European arms and security firms booming off the surge in funding for border security systems and technologies.

A group of transnationals is receiving millions of euros of public research funds to develop surveillance technologies and increasingly invasive espionage, as revealed by a new report published by the Transnational InstituteStatewatch, the Delàs Center for Studies for Peace, International Institute for Nonviolent Action (NOVACT) and the Center for Education and Research for Peace (CEIPAZ).

The report Market forces reveals that the research program of the EU 'Secure Societies', which has a budget of 1700 million euros, has been largely defined by the influence of the sector of "internal security" and that , in this process, it is building a Europe that is increasingly militarized and focused on security.

Arms trade and conflicts. Analysis of European exports to countries in armed conflict is a report by the Centre Delàs d'Estudis per la Pau and the Escola de Cultura de Pau, which analyzes arms exports by member states of the EU during 2015 (more recent year with available information on exports) to countries that were in a situation of armed conflict that year. The report analyzes arms exports to 13 countries that were the scene of 16 armed conflicts, offering an analysis of the context of the different conflicts, referring both to the recent history of each armed conflict, and to the most relevant concrete events that took place during 2015.

In a context of growing arms trade from the EU and, at the same time, the increasingly serious consequences of these conflicts on the population - increasing mortality figures linked to these conflicts and an increasing number of people forcefully displaced as a result of this violence - this report aims to enrich the public debate about the impacts that the EU's armament policy has on the countries that are the scene of armed conflict. At the same time, it is a tool to generate greater political commitments both at Spanish and European level with a specific agenda aimed at controlling, reducing and eliminating arms exports to countries in armed conflict.

Informe 34: Los despropósitos del Gasto Militar. Análisis del presupuesto de defensa de España de 2017

Portada Informe34 cast DEFLos despropósitos del Gasto Militar. Análisis del presupuesto de defensa de España de 2017

Después de diez años en continua disminución, el presupuesto del Ministerio de Defensa español ha aumentado un 32% con respecto al de 2016. Este colosal aumento, y las argucias presupuestarias que se han aplicado hasta ahora para ocultar a la opinión pública cuál es el gasto militar real, se analizan en el nuevo informe del Centro Delàs de Estudios por la Paz.

El informe expone también los criterios de recuento de las partidas militares establecidos por el Centro Delàs, que revelan que el gasto militar español actual asciende a 18.776 millones de euros, una cantidad que representa 51,4 millones diarios y un 1,64% del PIB, muy por encima del 1% que señala la ministra de Defensa, María Dolores de Cospedal.

Report 33: The weapons bubble and the military industry in Spain. Special Armament Programs

The weapons bubble and the military industry in Spain. Special Armament Programs

The military industry in Spain is largely fuelled by the demands of the Ministry of Defense, and in particular by the so-called Special Armament Programs – Programas Especiales de Armamentos (PEA). PEA were approved the first time in 1998 and since then, due to the commitments made, generated a major State debt to military industries responsible for manufacturing them, reaching to the date an estimated €15.000 million.

Both the excessive accumulated debt and the public deficit associated with the PEA require a revision of these programs. An analysis that the Centre d’Estudis per la Pau addresses in its last report, together with a detailed picture of the main enterprises that conform the military production oligopoly in Spain.

The arrival of hundreds of thousands of refugees at the gates of Europe, mainly from the Syrian war, has given rise to political and social agendas focused on how to receive this population and on border control and surveillance. However, there has not been a sufficiently exhaustive debate about the causes of these population movements. This new report by Centre Delàs analyses the role that authorized and and realized European arms exports play in the aggravation and perpetuation of armed conflicts and tension situations that lead millions of people to leave its home every year.
