Harvard Sussex Program
on chemical and biological warfare armament and arms limitation

Robert Lovsin

Robert came to the Harvard Sussex Program in October 2006 from the University of Calgary, where his graduate work at the Centre for Military and Strategic Studies assessed the viability of sub-state terrorist organizations employing chemical and biological weapons (CBW) as opposed to conventional weapons as their primary weapons systems. Completed in May 2006, his Masters thesis is entitled, "Terrorism and Mass-casualty Weapons: The Choice of a New Generation?"

Under the supervision of Julian Perry Robinson and Daniel Feakes, Robert is looking at connections between nuclear weapons technology on the one hand and chemical and biological weapons on the other - using Iraq and Great Britain as case studies - which are relevant to the development of policy for their governance. The working title of his DPhil project is "Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Weapons Policy: A Comparative Analysis."
