TIME: All Day

EVENT: JANE'S holds a conference on WMD 2002: Protecting the Community. This conference looks at arms control and the use of CW agents for internal security - a hot topic in the light of recent events in Moscow. The 'New Terrorism' may demand new solutions - with new controls.

AGENDA: Millions of people are on the move every day, in many nations with different languages and common borders - some of which host key international centres for trade, finance, religion and culture. All these people migrating to and from work, taking leisure opportunities and going about their daily business offer the terrorist a perfect arena in which to inflict weapons of mass destruction - radiological, biological or chemical.
