Acknowledgments

This report is a joint effort of the World Policy Institute's Arms Trade Resource Center and the Arms Sales Monitoring Project at the Federation of American Scientists (see contact information, below). Jennifer Washburn conducted primary research and produced a first draft, which has been incorporated into sections I, II, III, and VI of this report. Tamar Gabelnick wrote sections IV and VII, and William D. Hartung was responsible for revisions and final drafting of sections I, II, III, V, and VI. Michelle Ciarrocca did background research, including research and production on all of the statistical tables, which are drawn in part from the Arms Sales Monitoring Project's data base on U.S. arms transfers to Turkey, maintained by Anna Rich. The authors would like to acknowledge the helpful comments provided by Mike Amitay of the Washington Kurdish Institute and Stephen Yale-Loehr, who teaches immigration and refugee law at Cornell Law School in Ithaca, New York and serves as a member of the Amnesty International USA Aegean co-group.

The Arms Trade Resource Center would like to thank the following foundations and individuals: the Compton Foundation, Judy Driscoll, the HKH Foundation, Constance Otis, the Ploughshares Fund, Rockefeller Family Associates, the Samuel Rubin Foundation, Mary Van Evera, Margaret R.

MacArthur Foundation.
