Chemical and biological weapons

The Arms Control and Non-proliferation Programme conducts research into issues of nuclear, biological and chemical weapons and arms control, disarmament, proliferation and non-proliferation.


Current research issues within the Chemical and Biological Security Project:

  • The role and responsibility of the Swedish biomedical research community in preventing acts of mass impact terrorism.

  • Disease surveillance and response with a focus on Asia.

  • Legal, technical and historical aspects of the implementation of international prohibitions against chemical warfare, including the verification of non-production of chemical weapons within the chemical industry and national defence research establishments, and the security implications of dual-use research and technologies in the life sciences.
