Abstract / Description

There is a longstanding norm against the development and use of chemical and biological weapons, which is embodied in two global prohibition regimes. Review of the efficiency and of the effectiveness of these regimes needs to be considered in the light of the changing scientific, technological and political context.. In this report we discuss a project which has sought to contribute to a review of these regimes through engagement with UK parliamentarians and the general public.

This summary report of the project contains the following 5 sections. Section 1 is the background introduction, Section 2 gives a brief overview of a research report and its distribution, section 3 then deals with two new methods we used to publicise the report: our webinar and the cartoons which we produced to enhance the spread and understanding of the report. Then section 4 gives a review of the feedback we received about the report and the final section 5 contains our reflections on the project as a whole.
