№24(2003): The Chemical Weapons Convention: Problems and Prospects (in Russian).

nz24.jpgSix years have passed since Convention on the Prohibition of the Development, Production, Stockpiling and Use of Chemical Weapons and on their Destruction (CWC) entered into force. The time has come to evaluate its achievements during this period.
So did the Convention become an effective mechanism for the liquidation of CW? Was it possible to achieve universality and create reliable verification measures? What are the key issues that must be addressed in order to strengthen the role of the CWC in averting the proliferation of CW and the fall of this type of weapon into the hands of new states and terrorists? This volume of Study Papers named "The Chemical Weapons Convention: Problems and Prospects" is dedicated to answering these questions as well as many others.
