Trust for Research and Education on the Arms Trade

The Trust for Research and Education on the Arms Trade (TREAT) was established in 1990 to promote research into the international arms trade and its effects, and disseminate the results of such research. It acts as a grant-making charity. The main, but by no means only beneficiary, is the Campaign Against Arms Trade.

The Trustees award grants for the following project areas: academic or other research resulting in a publication or other dissemination of the research (this can include bringing together work previously published elsewhere); written or other materials which serve to educate the wider public on arms export issues, including the relationship between the arms trade and social, economic, human rights and development issues; purchase of materials to enable such research to take place; production and dissemination of research and education publications about arms exports.
