Dual-use goods are goods that can be used for civil and military purposes. One example for these kinds of goods are so-called IMSI catchers, devices used to surveil mobile phones. In Switzerland, these goods are governed with a special legislation – unlike in other countries, where they are looked at as conventional arms exports. At SRF Data, we took the effort to parse and visualize the recently released data from the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs SECO.
Because our data processing workflow is fully reproducible, we can re-publish the vis again and again as soon as new data are available. One of the cool things about this project is that it can be updated every year once the SECO releases new data. We already did that in 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018. The data and methodology are freely available on GitHub, as with other stories published by SRF Data.
