Conversion Survey, 1998: Global Disarmament, Defense Industry Consolidation and Conversion

By Bonn International Center For Conversion | Go to book overview

about the Center
The Bonn International Center for Conversion (BICC) is an independent non-profit organization dedicated to promoting and facilitating the processes whereby people, skills, technology, equipment, and financial and economic resources can be shifted away from the defense sector and applied to alternative civilian uses. Through research and analysis, technical assistance and advice, retraining programs, publications, and conferences, BICC supports governmental and non-governmental initiatives as well as public and private sector organizations by finding ways to reduce costs and enhance effectiveness in the draw-down of military-related activities. As a result, BICC contributes to improved post-conflict settlement and structural development. BICC's six program areas are:
Defense expenditures and budget reallocation
Civilian applications for military R&D
Industrial conversion and restructuring
Demobilization and reintegration
Base closure and redevelopment
Dismantling and disposal of surplus weapons.

BICC is an international think tank, which conducts research, makes policy suggestions and facilitates and mediates the conversion process at all levels--local, national and global. The Center provides consulting services to a range of public and private organizations. In order to function as an international clearing- house, BICC actively collects data and information on all conversion issue areas, and produces a variety of publications analyzing the international conversion process, such as its annual conversion survey, its series of reports, briefs, and papers, as well as its Internet service ConverNet at http://bicc.uni-bonn.de

BICC was established in 1994 with generous support from the German State Government of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW). The Center's shareholders include the states of North Rhine-Westphalia and Brandenburg as well as the Westdeutsche Landesbank Girozentrale (WestLB), Düsseldorf/Münster, and the Landesentwicklungsgesellschaft NRW. BICC cooperates with multilateral institutions (such as the European Commission, the United Nations, and NATO), German organizations and foundations (such as the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Technische Zusammenarbeit, the German Federal Government, the Fritz- Thyssen Stiftung, the Volkswagen-Stiftung) and international organizations and key foundations (including the Arias Foundation, the Center for Conflict Resolution Cape Town, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Ford Foundation, the Joyce Mertz-Gilmore Foundation, the MacArthur Foundation, the Monterey Institute of International Studies, the Overseas Development Council, Rutgers University, and the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute).
