International Disarmament Law 2021
Disarmament is integral to the safeguarding and promotion of security, development, and human rights. Over the past fifty years many multilateral disarmament treaties have been concluded and form an integral part of international law today. This course explores contemporary international rules governing disarmament as well as related issues of arms control, non-proliferation and international humanitarian law. It further examines the political, operational, and technical considerations which affect their implementation.
The course is designed for government officials, diplomats, security experts, humanitarian and disarmament practitioners, military staff and lawyers.
It is particularly relevant for policy- and decision makers who have recently joined the disarmament community in Geneva or abroad.
