Peace Movement Session I-4. Disarmament and Human Security

The world spent an astronomical amount of $1,917 billion(2.377 quadrillion in KRW) of military spending in 2019 which is 2.2 percent of the world’s GDP. It is increasing arms trade and arms production day by day. Military spending of South Korea is also the same.  However, the COVID-19 pandemic and climate crisis are asking us what “security” should be to protect the earth and humanity. The world has spent astronomical amounts to prepare for war, but it has lost the opportunity to respond to what actually threatens human safety.
