Description

Title:Impacts of Emerging Infectious Disease Research on International Security Policy
Author(s):Laegreid, W.W.
Subject(s):Emerging infectious diseases
Abstract:Dr. Will Laegreid asserts in this policy brief that the occurrence of an emerging infectious disease (EID) event introduced by natural or human causes may have important consequences for international security, with potential serious effects in economic and geopolitical spheres. However, the impacts will vary in magnitude and form depending on a number of factors. Laegreid argues that scientific research examining a variety of potential contexts in which an EID event might occur and informed by policy considerations is required to aid in EID prevention, mitigation, response and recovery.
