Militarism Watch produces handouts and other resources to help increase skills on research, with digital versions and links to these tools to be posted on this web page. Activities to increase capacity include workshops, webinars or cyber-seminars, and a “research camp,” conducted by project members. As a set of tools is developed and posted, project members are encouraged to publish the results of their research.
Aspiring and experienced researchers are invited to be project members, to learn and share skills, and to share the results of their research into aspects of U.S. militarization, including military bases, arms sales, private contractors, recruitment, lack of GI rights, and more.
