The Third EU Non-Proliferation and Disarmament Conference was held in Brussels, Belgium this week, gathering more than 250 delegates to discuss non-proliferation and disarmament of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons. Angela Kane, the UN High Representative for Disarmament Affairs and Ahmet Üzümcü, the Director-General of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons were the Keynote Speakers of the Conference. 
VERTIC’s Legal Officers Yasemin Balci and Sonia Drobysz were invited to speak during the “Next Generation Workshop” preceding the Conference.
