Chemical Weapons Arms Control at a Crossroads: Russia, Syria, and the Future of the Chemical Weapons Convention
March 23, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm EDT
The George Mason University Schar School of Policy and Government will host a webcast discussion of Chemical Weapons Arms Control at a Crossroads: Russia, Syria, and the Future of the Chemical Weapons Convention on March 23, 2021 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. ET.
The repeated use of chemical weapons by Syria and Russia threatens to undermine international efforts to eliminate these weapons. How will state parties to the Chemical Weapons Convention, which bans the development and use of chemical weapons, respond to these violations of the treaty at their annual meeting in April?
A guest panelist will join Schar School Professor Gregory Koblentz to discuss the challenges posed by the current Russian and Syrian chemical weapons programs, the status of international efforts to strengthen accountability for use of chemical weapons, and the implications for global chemical weapons arms control.
