Abstract / Description

It is unclear at present how the proposal by China and Pakistan for an Aspirational (Ethical) Code under the BTWC will be taken forward through to the 9th Review Conference of the Convention in 2022. However, some difficult questions will have to be addressed for this process to be successful in producing a code that can then be implemented in more detailed codes of conduct and codes of practice in national and professional settings after the Review Conference. This paper addresses one such question: How might the Aspirational Code proposed by China and Pakistan in 2018 best be modified to make it easy to engage the life science community?
