Over the course of the last years, UNIDIR has developed a range of digital tools to support arms control and disarmament processes related to a number of different areas including: cyber security, artificial intelligence, space security and biological disarmament. These tools have provided States and stakeholders with a valuable resource that has helped support policy processes and promote trust, transparency, and cooperation in different areas of technology governance.
This event provided an overview of UNIDIR’s growing collection of digital tools and was a good opportunity to have an interactive discussion around the methods, scope and opportunities presented by these resources.
