About Alpha

  • 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.

    3. Informing and improving international efforts to prevent proliferation.

    Alpha is based in the Centre for Science and Security Studies at King’s College London. More about Alpha can be found here.

    Project Alpha staff are also available for training, consultancy and media work in relation to export control, non-proliferation and sanctions issues.
