VERTIC lecture in The Hague

VERTIC's Executive Director, Mr Andreas Persbo, travelled to The Hague, the Netherlands, on 5-7 September 2016 to deliver two lectures; one on the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and another on the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty.

The Asser Instituut organised, in cooperation with the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), the Seventh Annual Summer Programme on Disarmament and Non-Proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction in a Changing World. The objective of the Summer Programme is to inspire interest among the younger generation in WMD demilitarisation and non-proliferation as part of the larger process of maintaining global peace and security.

Other lecturers included Ms Laura Rockwood, director of the Vienna Center for Disarmament and Non-Proliferation, and a member of the VERTIC Board of Trustees.

Mr Persbo also took the opportunity to visit colleagues at the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.
