Preventing Biological Warfare. (Forum)


Dooley, Erin E., Environmental Health Perspectives


The Department of Peace Studies at the University of Bradford in West Yorkshire, United Kingdom, was created in response to initiatives taken by members of the Religious Society of Friends (or Quakers) to form a British peace studies center similar to centers in Scandinavia and North America. The prevention of biological warfare through the strengthening of the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention (BTWC) is one of the department's main research projects.

Located on the Internet at http://www.brad.ac.uk/acad/sbtwc/, the department's BTWC Web site is a primary source of information on the convention, which was first negotiated in the early 1970s, and the protocol being developed to make the convention a more potent and timely defense against the proliferation of biological weapons.

Links to the site's most recently added documents and videos are listed on the home page. The Convention (Ratifications and Signatories) link leads to the texts of all the major agreements leading up to the convention, going as far back as the 1925 Geneva Protocol for the Prohibition of the Use in War of Asphyxiating, Poisonous or Other Gases, and of Bacteriological Methods of Warfare.
