Project Alpha works to understand and counter illicit, proliferation-related trade. This involves three strands of activity:
1. Understanding illicit trade.
2. Improving the implementation of trade controls by governments and the private sector, including by contributing to the EU outreach program on dual-use goods
3. Informing and improving international efforts to prevent proliferation.
Project Alpha staff are also available for training, consultancy and media work in relation to export control, non-proliferation and sanctions issues.
