Abstract

CBRNE agents may pose a potent physical threat but may equally–or even more so–create significant fear and public distress. This chapter explores how the public can react to CBRNE, how states may handle incidents and how technology may be utilised to counter adverse societal effects.

Fußnoten
1
Social contract theory can be dated back to the 16- and 1700s, with influential thinkers such as Thomas Hobbes, Jean-Jacques Rosseau and John Locke in the forefront. In some form or another, all three argued that the state of nature and humans needed to be regulated in a form of social contract where humans gave up some of their liberties, or even rights, to the state in exchange for protection of their lives and property.
