On May 11 2021, VERTIC Senior Researcher Grant Christopher was joined by Christiaan Triebert, Melissa Hanham, and Rayna Rogers, to discuss how they pushed the application of open-source intelligence (OSINT) in arms control, and beyond, to the limit.

The use of open sources and the application of open-source intelligence (OSINT) has transformed arms control. It has also made the relationship closer between the public and broader society, to the arms control agreements that are made in their name. The people that enabled this shift did not acquire all the skills they needed from a taught OSINT course but often through complex paths that required them to identify and develop the skills they needed.
