  • IDSA Occasional Paper No. 28
    2012

    Bio terrorism is emerging more as possibility in the 21st century not only because of the changing nature of terrorism but also because of rapid growth in life sciences. Never before in history has an aspect of science offered as much potential for novel insight and predictive understanding of the world, as well as opportunities for enhancing the human condition, as life sciences are offering today. The most recent case, which highlights the interest of a non-state actor in investing in biological weapons was found in Norway. These developments have been a concern for the BWC regime. In this backdrop the paper discusses the 7th Review Conference which was concluded in December 2011.
