 About the Project

 >> WMD Commission Website

Welcome to the Civil Society Review of the Report of the Weapons of Mass Destruction Commission (WMDC). In addition to a comprehensive analysis of the report, this site will provide background information, context, and further resources related to the report and the topics it covers.

The mandate of the WMDC is to investigate ways of reducing the dangers posed by nuclear, biological, chemical and radiological weapons. The WMDC released its report on June 1, 2006 at United Nations headquarters in New York City.

Civil society organizations with expertise in non-proliferation and disarmament released an in-depth analysis in May 2007. Entitled Nuclear Disorder or Cooperative Security, it is available in both print and online editions.

Additional resources on this site provide independent research and analysis on the history of nuclear, biological and chemical weapons and delivery systems, current developments, and possibilities for controlling and eliminating weapons of mass destruction and terror.
