From e-Reserved Readings, read, Kellman, B. (2011). The biological weapons convention and the democratization of mass violence. Global Policy 2(2), 210-216. doi: 10.1111/j.1758-5899.2011.00083.x
Kellman suggests that there has always been an undisputable relationship with politico-economic power and technology to commit mass violence. His thesis asserts that individuals, organizations or governments that lacked technology for mass violence simply lack power; conversely, technologically strong entities hold power.
- Why does Kellman believe there is a paradigm shift concerning his above-identified thesis, a shift that he calls the democratization of mass violence?
- What steps can be taken to promote technology progress that protects against the commission and spreading of mass violence capacities?
- There is no global authority—rule of law if you will—to enforce policies relating to the democratization of mass violence.
- What plan would you implement to address governance of the BWC?
- Should the treaty apply exclusively to state signatories or should it apply to civil society, terrorists and criminals? Explain with details.
