VERTIC's NIM Programme Director participates in BWC Workshop for new diplomats

Scott Spence, Programme Director for National Implementation, participated in a BWC workshop for new diplomats on 3 August in Geneva. The half-day workshop, which was co-organised by the BWC Implementation Support Unit and the Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP), was held to introduce officials in Geneva-based missions to the Convention. The workshop was opened with a presentation by Mr Daniel Feakes, Chief of the BWC ISU, giving a practical introduction to the Convention. This was followed by a presentation from Mr Spence, available here, ´╗┐on national implementation of the Convention. The audience also heard a presentation from Dr Jean Pascal Zanders on Article VII (assistance and protection) and from Mr Marc Finaud of GCSP on Article X (assistance and co-operation).

VERTIC, represented by Mr Spence, will be participating in the upcoming Meeting of Experts to the BWC in Geneva during 10-14 August. His statement during the plenary session and remarks as a Guest of the Chair will be posted on the VERTIC website shortly after they are given.
