Professor Participates in U.N. Meeting

Marie Chevrier, a professor of Public Policy and Administration at Rutgers-Camden, recently participated in a meeting at the United Nations in Vienna, Austria.

The meeting, titled “United Nations Security Council Resolution 1540 Civil Society Forum – Opportunities for Engagement,” was hosted by the Federal Ministry for European and International Affairs of Austria in cooperation with the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs. It focused on the prevention of weapons of mass destruction and brought together members of civil society groups to share experiences and ideas on how to broaden participation and support for and build upon previous efforts to support the U.N. resolution.

Chevrier is a member of the board of directors of the BioWeapons Prevention Project and contributed to the project’s recent report, “BioWeapons Monitor 2012.”

Chevrier has written extensively about arms control policy. Her research interests include arms control, chemical and biological weapons policy, international negotiations conflict, and conflict resolution. She teaches courses in international negotiations and negotiations for effective management at Rutgers-Camden.
