WEBINAR: Disarmament decisions in the time of COVID-19.
If disarmament and arms control treaties are to work effectively and respond to evolving security challenges, the states parties to theses regimes must be able to take decisions that are clear, easily understood and will support the implementation of the obligations set out in the treaties. This has never been easy, but the COVID-19 pandemic has presented new challenges and obliged governments and other stakeholders to experiment with new approaches and mechanisms. This panel discussion will examine the fundamental elements of good decision-making and governance in the context of disarmament and arms control treaties, discuss how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected these processes, and explore the implications for the future.
