Mr Daniel Feakes

Daniel Feakes is a research fellow with The Harvard Sussex Program on Chemical and Biological Warfare Armament and Arms Limitation. He graduated from the University of Sussex in 1996 with an MA in Contemporary European Studies and a BA in History with German. His research focuses on the implementation of the Chemical Weapons Convention, the role of the EU in governing dual-use chemical and biological technologies and the involvement of global civil society in chemical and biological disarmament. Much of this research builds upon the three years Feakes worked as the HSP researcher in the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons in The Hague and his attendance at many Biological Weapons Convention meetings in Geneva. Together with Caitriona McLeish, Feakes is a co-organiser of the research seminar series New Approaches to WMD Proliferation, which is supported by the UK's Economic and Social Research Council.
