Strategic Trade Information Hub

STRI is currently working on a project compiling high-quality, comprehensive information sources on United Nations Security Council resolution 1540-related strategic trade controls controls that will be publicly accessible on the Global Partnership against the Spread of Weapons of Mass Destruction website. The project kicked off January 2022 and aims to fill a critical resource gap by helping governments and other stakeholders locate information easily and efficiently and facilitate its application to the implementation of effective counterproliferation export controls. The Global Partnership Against the Spread of Weapons and Materials of Mass Destruction (the Global Partnership) is a G7-led, 31-member international initiative aimed at preventing the proliferation of chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) weapons and related materials.
