The United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research (UNIDIR) is an autonomous institution within the United Nations that conducts independent research on disarmament and related problems, particularly international security issues. UNIDIR supports Member States, the United Nations and policy and research communities in advancing ideas and actions that contribute to a more sustainable and peaceful world.

UNIDIR’s SecTec Programme will help practitioners and multilateral disarmament processes respond effectively to the security challenges raised by technological innovation. The objectives of this programme are to support norm development and implementation; increase understanding of the security implications of digital destabilization; and help modernize the “arms control toolbox” in relation to new technologies. The SecTec Programme will pursue these objectives through three priority areas: cyber stability; artificial intelligence and the weaponization of increasingly autonomous technologies; and the security dimensions of innovations in science and technology.
