On 25 November 2020, the EU Non-Proliferation and Disarmament Consortium held the annual Next Generation Workshop, organised by the Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI).

This event brought together young professionals in the field of arms control, non-proliferation and disarmament to discuss relevant challenges. 14 young professionals were chosen to present at the online 2020 edition of the workshop, which involved over 100 participants from 26 different countries.

VERTIC’s Associate Legal Officer Thomas Brown presented on the topic of national implementation of the Biological Weapons Convention in light of the challenges posed by emerging technologies and answered questions from the workshop’s participants.
