Bonn International Center for Conversion

BICC

Bonn, Germany

BICC is dedicated to promoting peace and development through the effective transformation of military-related processes, functions, activities, assets, and structures. While disarmament frees up resources that can be employed in the fight against poverty, conversion maximizes outcomes through the careful management of such resources transformation. It is in this sense that, together, disarmament and transformation can contribute to increasing human security. Having expanded its span of activities beyond the classical areas of conversion that focus on the reuse of military resources (such as the reallocation of military expenditures, restructuring of the defense industry, closure of military bases, and demobilization), BICC is now organizing its work around three main topics: peace-building, arms, and conflict.
