    Keep Chemical Weapons Out of Terrorist Hands

    As the Islamic State group and the Nusra Front seized territory in Syria and northern Iraq, they came upon military sites where chemical munitions were hidden, abandoned, or lost, and they also captured industrial facilities with toxic chemicals.

Research Programs

RAND research is conducted by four programs that address social and economic policy issues, three federally funded research and development centers (FFRDCs), and by RAND's wholly owned subsidiaries, RAND Europe and RAND Australia.
