Susan Willett: Defence expert who argued that an ethical arms policy is essential for international security
Thursday 02 June 2011
Sue Willett was an expert in the economics of defence and international defence policy. She became one of the foremost authorities on the vicious cycle of debt, underdevelopment and conflict in the developing world and called for radical action by the international community to break the cycle.
