The Chemical Weapons Convention: an Overview
In the present lecture I will present a brief description of the Chemical Weapons Convention focusing on the rights and duties of its States Parties, and on its implementation.
An overview of the evolution of the Convention during the past twelve years will emphasize the way in which States Parties have up-dated the provisions of the Convention in order to maintain it as an effective instrument for disarmament and non-proliferation.
