MetadataShow full item record
This project will investigate trends in science and technology (S&T) relevant to the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) to assess their implications for the future operation of the Convention, including potential emerging threats and developments that could limit the effective implementation of the convention. The project will reach a broad international audience and will support a wider discussion between S&T and international security professionals about how to address the implications of the revolution in life sciences without unduly impeding continued scientific progress.
