European Working Group on Non-Lethal Weapons
Several European organisations are currently developing and implementing non-lethal capabilities. This enables many emerging and non-traditional threats (which may appear in low intensity, asymmetric conflicts, peace support, and anti-terrorism operations) to be countered with an innovative solution.
Non-Lethal weapons are of interest to both the military and law enforcement agencies as, in many cases, the character of the scenarios might be similar. Non-lethal weapons can be seen as having dual-use application and they provide armed forces, law enforcement agencies, and policy makers with additional options to respond in a tailored and graduated manner.
