VERTIC’s National Implementation Measures (NIM) Programme is currently looking for interns with a start date in mid-November.

You can find full details of the advertisement on our internships page.

To give effect to international arms control and non-proliferation instruments, States must bring their domestic law into conformity with their obligations under international law. The need to implement national measures was also highlighted by the adoption of UN Security Council Resolution 1540 (UNSCR 1540) in April 2004. This resolution obliges States to enact and enforce effective laws and supporting measures to prevent the proliferation of nuclear, biological and chemical weapons, related materials and their means of delivery and to prohibit non-State actors, especially terrorists, from developing and using such weapons.

The NIM Programme also provides cost-free assistance to interested States for adherence to and implementation of certain CBRN treaties and related legal instruments. This includes universality workshops, reviewing and commenting on existing draft legislation or providing assistance in the drafting of new laws during workshops in capitals.
