As events like the Boston Marathon bombings, the use of chemical weapons in Syria, and the nuclear weapons policies of North Korea demonstrate, chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive events continue to pose a major challenge for contemporary international security policy. Whether the result of accidents or politically motivated acts, explosions or the uncontrolled release of chemicals, biological agents or radioactive contamination into the environment—CBRNe events—can potentially cause massive human and environmental damage.
KCIS will bring together scholars, practitioners from the military and first responder sectors, officials from governments, non-governmental organizations and international institutions to discuss these challenges. We invite you to join us in these discussions and to offer your own perspectives and ideas to contribute to the development of effective, collaborative strategies and policies needed to manage this challenge.
