Brexit, chemicals legislation and the UK defence sector

Peacetime environmental legislation can help reduce the use of hazardous materials in conflicts. In this blog Linsey Cottrell and Doug Weir examine the impact of EU REACH legislation on the European defence industry, and the implications of a hard Brexit for efforts to reduce the polluting footprint of the UK MoD.

And our message to all students: do not underestimate your agency, particularly in fast moving topics like conflict and the environment, you have the power to drive change through the decisions you make and the actions you take.

Big thank you to @leedsbeckett peace studies for inviting Leonie and Doug over today. Great to join @uche4purpose and @dED_ucation to speak about the environmental dimensions of armed conflicts and militarism.

The announcement came just a day after the NOC urged a ceasefire in Tripoli after a projectile exploded less than 50 metres from a gas canister filling plant near the airport

Interestingly, the NOC's head also highlighted plans to work more closely with communities affected by the oil industry, and flagged the importance of diversification away from oil and gas, which in 2018 represented 95% of export earnings and 60% of GDP (OPEC).
