The event is public, registration is not required. For more information, please contact Sico van der Meer.

Clingendael will organise a side event of the yearly Conference of States Parties of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) during the last week of November. At the side event the recent Clingendael report on the past and future of the OPCW will be presented and discussed.

Can the OPCW reduce its size and financial resources now that its verification of chemical weapons disarmament is almost finished, or could the organisation change its focus towards other challenges regarding chemical weapons?
