There are deep flaws in the structure of global regimes designed to control access to WMD technology and sharp disagreement among major powers over the use of sanctions and military force to address potential threats. Often overlooked is the role of the private sector in issues surrounding WMD proliferation and responding to the threat of bioterrorism.
Distinguished leaders from business and the United States government will join Columbia and EWI experts to explore how the private sector can collaborate with governments to devise an effective response to these threats.
The presenters are:
Dr. Mark Chandler
Chairman and CEO, Biophysical Corporation
Member of the Board of Directors, the EastWest Institute
Brandon D. Declet
Counsel to the US House of Representatives, Committee on Homeland Security
Lecturer in the Discipline of International and Public Affairs, Columbia University
Dr. Greg Austin
Vice President at the EastWest Institute and Director of EWI's Global Security Program and Policy Innovation (EWI, 2007).
