This concluding chapter summarizes the main points that have been deduced from the preceding analysis. The first is that states' past resistance to shared export controls has been replaced with a strong support for them—at least on paper. Second, the disconnection between states' “responsible” arms export policies and their often “irresponsible” export practices shows that the non-compliance nature of the state is hard to change. The chapter also discusses the politics of the arms trade in medium-size-exporting states, including Israel, South Africa, and Brazil. While Israel is more concerned with its reputation in the international arena, South Africa is more concerned with its domestic affairs in terms of arms export. Brazil, in stark contrast, demonstrated its capability to keep its domestic dealings in low profile, away from international scrutiny.
