Science and Technology Review in the BWC and CWC: Policy Primer For the Biochemical Security 2030 Project

Research output: Book/ReportOther report

Abstract

Advances in science and technology (S&T) may bring many benefits to public health, safety and security; however S&T advances may also be misused to cause harm. This means that S&T developments have impacts across the various articles of the Biological Weapons Convention (BWC) and the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) and need to be reviewed regularly. This document outlines the areas of interest within our new project, and our approach to thinking about the development of S&T review within the BWC and CWC regimes. We hope this approach can provide fresh evidence, impetus and solutions to long-standing and emerging challenges which face these regimes.
