Proliferation central: Syria's nuclear, chemical and biological weapons by Carl Ungerer

By Carl Ungerer

This Policy Analysis by Carl Ungerer examines the threat posed by Syria’s nuclear, biological and chemical weapons following recent revelations of a plutonium reactor being built with North Korean assistance in the Syrian Desert.

The paper argues that Syria’s nuclear program represents a challenge to non-proliferation efforts in the Middle East and should be a key focus for any renewed Australian counter-proliferation diplomacy.
