Ian Anthony is the Programme Director for European Security at SIPRI. In addition to monitoring and analysing developments in European security, the programme currently focuses on some specific challenges facing Europe. Military Risk Reduction in Europe examines the role of military-to-military contacts; the experience with sub-regional CSBMs in Northern Europe; and the experience with technical risk reduction measures such as incidents at sea agreements. Reassessing CBRN Threats in a Changing Global Environment assesses how risks posed by hazardous materials have changed since 2014, the measures being taken to manage risk and steps that might be taken to enhance the effectiveness of responses.
