Abstract

This chapter has three objectives. First it assesses briefly contemporary and
emerging chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) threats from
non-state actors. Secondly, it identifies capability challenges across “Five Eyes”
intelligence communities (ICs) in managing CBRN non-state actor threats and
how these can be addressed. Thirdly, noting the threat posed by CBRN terrorism
and “Five Eyes” ICs capabilities to prevent, disrupt or mitigate them, the chapter
outlines key ethical challenges for ICs in managing such threats. The chapter is
divided into three sections: contemporary and emerging non-state actor CBRN
threats, intelligence capability gaps and challenges, and ethical challenges.
