Following requests from States Parties and other stakeholders, the Implementation Support Unit has created this page in order to aggregate information that may be of use to States Parties in their preparations for the Eighth BWC Review Conference. A similar page
was created by the ISU prior to the Seventh Review Conference in 2011.
Below you will find links to articles, press releases, papers and other resources. These links are provided for information purposes only. The views and opinions expressed in the publications are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the ISU, the BWC Chairman or the States Parties. Items are posted here as a service to website readers and posting does not imply endorsement. The ISU is not responsible for the content of third party websites.
This page will be updated as and when items become available. If you have come across something that you think should be on this page, but is not at the moment, please email the document or a link directly to the ISU.
