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

Welcome to the Harvard Sussex Program


HSP is an inter-university collaboration for research, communication and training in support of informed public policy towards chemical and biological weapons. The Program links research groups at Harvard University in the United States and the University of Sussex in the United Kingdom. It began formally in 1990, building on two decades of earlier collaboration between its co-directors.


In recent years HSP has been funded by grants from the John D and Catherine T MacArthur Foundation of Chicago, the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Alfred P Sloan Foundation of New York, the UK Economic & Social Research Council, the Sixth Framework Programme of the European Commission, and the foreign ministries of Japan, the Netherlands, Portugal and the United Kingdom.
