Conversion Survey, 1997: Global Disarmament and Disposal of Surplus Weapons

By Herbert Wulf; Bonn International Center for Conversion | Go to book overview

about the Center
As an independent non-profit organization, the Bonn International Center for Conversion (BICC) supports and promotes the processes by which people, skills, technology, equipment, financial and economic resources are shifted from the military or defense sector towards alternative, civilian purposes. The establishment of BICC in April 1994 resulted from an initiative of the German State Government of North Rhine- Westphalia (NRW), in cooperation with the Investitionsbank and the Landesentwicklungsgesellschaft (both of NRW), the German State Government of Brandenburg, and the support of the United Nations.Working as a worldwide clearinghouse on practical conversion experience and projects, BICC provides documentation, research and information as well as consulting services and facilities for governmental and non-governmental organizations, companies, and individuals involved in conversion.BICC's activities focus primarily on the following six areas of conversion:
Analysis of the means and methods of reallocating the financial resources of the military sector to non-military purposes.
Reorientation of military research and development (R&D) facilities and the provision of this R&D knowledge and creativity for non-military purposes.
Opportunities for and barriers to conversion of the arms industry. BICC is in a position to assist industry in downsizing its overcapacities and in reducing its dependence on arms production.
Programs for the demobilization of military personnel and civilian personnel employed by the armed forces and their reintegration into non-military employment.
Reallocation of military facilities and installations and their conversion to non- military purposes (base closures).
Alternative use, disposal or scrapping of surplus weaponry with the purpose of avoiding indiscriminate exports.
In addition to the conversion survey, BICC publishes books and series such as reports, briefs and papers which analyze the background of the international conversion process, report on conversion projects and experience, and offer scientific as well as practical know-how in the various fields of conversion.Information on BICC's work and activities can also be obtained via the Internet through the Center's WWW server ConverNet: http://bicc.uni-bonn.de
