Outreach 2.0 Report Published

STRI, with the sponsorship of the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs (UNODA), has published a new report, "Outreach 2.0: Emerging Technologies and Effective Outreach Practices," authored by Andrea Viski and Scott Jones.

Drawing upon existing best practices, risk assessments, surveys, interviews, and stakeholder feedback, STRI's new report aims to empower governments with tools, in the form of good practices, with which to conduct outreach to emerging technology sectors that could be targeted by non-State actors for malicious purposes. The report authors have identified an advanced outreach model, Outreach 2.0, that can be used by countries to enhance compliance with United Nations Security Council resolution 1540. Outreach 2.0 consists of a more customized, targeted, creative, real-time, and collaborative communication strategy between regulators and technology holders that builds trust, support, knowledge-sharing, and inclusion.
