Center on Contemporary Conflict
MetadataShow full item record
Objective: The lack of national security norms and guidance governing research on highly transmissible pathogens (e.g., SARS and engineered influenza strains) poses a grave global security threat. Though norms exist at the research level, there is a lack of clear expectations and guidance at the national level for what constitutes biosafety norms. This project seeks to address the threat by providing the essential components for developing international biosafety norms.
