The Bradford Non-Lethal Weapons Research Project (BNLWRP) was established in 1995 at the Centre for Conflict Resolution, Department of Peace Studies, University of Bradford, United Kingdom.

The project’s key objectives are to:

  • Review and describe non-lethal weapons (NLWs), which are being developed and deployed.
  • Identify and track defence and related research institutes involved in the development and manufacture of NLWs.
  • Follow doctrine and policy debates related to the use of NLWs.
  • Monitor the operational use of NLWs
  • Examine the impact of NLWs on international laws, arms treaties and conventions.
  • Highlight the ethical and societal issues that surround the research, development, deployment and use of such weapons.
