Abstract

At its summits, NATO places a high priority on preventing the proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) and defending against Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) threats. Some of the summit declarations led to concrete results that are still influencing presence and future, such as NATO’s Weapons of Mass Destruction Non-Proliferation Centre at NATO Headquarters in Brussels, the Combined Joint CBRN Defence Task Force (CJ-CBRND-TF), the Joint CBRN Defence Centre of Excellence (JCBRND COE) in Vyškov, the Joint CBRN Defence Capability Development Group (JCBRND-CDG) and – of course – NATO’s Comprehensive, Strategic-level Policy for Preventing the Proliferation of WMD and Defending Against CBRN threats. The Framework Nations Concept (FNC) Cluster on CBRN Protection might join these success stories.
