MetadataShow full item record
Before Saddam Hussein co-opted pesticide production facilities in Iraq to produce chemical weapons, the world_s inspection and verification regimes were designed to govern large-scale chemical manufacturing facilities located within developed countries. Globalization has reduced the efficacy of the current inspection regimes and opened verification gaps through the proliferation of chemical manufacturing equipment and infrastructure. The project will examine the movement and tracking of chemical manufacturing equipment of dual-use concern. The National Academy of Sciences will focus on current systems, their shortcomings, and the impacts of technology advancements, as well as explore recommendations for future tracking and monitoring operations.
