HSP Reports from Geneva


Since 1994, HSP has been reporting closely on progress on the Geneva negotiations to strengthen the 1972 Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention (BWC). Our reporter throughout has been, and continues to be, Professor Graham Pearson, who is a member of the HSP Advisory Board as well as being a leading authority in the field. His regular reports initially appeared as quarterly reviews in The CBW Conventions Bulletin. Below, there are links to all of them, as well as to additional special reviews and commentaries on the negotiations that he has written for us.
