Author Andrew Feinstein to speak on the weapons trade

April 10, 2017

What deals has the British arms manufacturer BAE made with the Saudi prince Bandar bin Sultan? And what role did former prime minister Tony Blair play in making these deals?

Andrew Feinstein, author of the book The Shadow World, will answer these questions and more about the international arms trade on 24 April. A documentary based on his book will also be screened.

Feinstein, from South Africa, has written an expose about the shady side of international arms deals. The documentary, based on the book, had its Dutch premier at last year’s International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam.

PAX is organising the evening in Utrecht. Andrew Feinstein will answer audience questions after the film.
