In June 2013 the 1992 Russia–United States Umbrella Agreement for the Cooperative Threat Reduction (CTR) programme lapsed.1 The focus of CTR in recent years, as well as that of the Group of 8 (G8) Global Partnership against the Spread of Weapons and Materials of Mass Destruction, has been on biological threat reduction.2 In the US budget for financial year 2014, ‘biological weapons engagement programs’ represented just under 60 per cent of the CTR budget, while biothreat reduction was signalled as an area of interest by the G8 at a meeting in Stockholm, Sweden, in 2012.3 On 26–28 September 2013 former CTR programme participants and scholars met at St Simons Island, Georgia, USA, to discuss and analyse the results of the CTR programme.4
