What is the role of disarmament law and international regulations on arms control and non-proliferation of conventional weapons and weapons of mass destruction in today’s international landscape? Is disarmament being effective and can it reduce the occurrence of armed conflicts worldwide? Join us for a debate on these and other questions together with experts in disarmament and international relations on the occasion of the launch of John Kierulf’s book: “Disarmament and International Law” and gain a better understanding of today’s global security landscape and the effectiveness of international law.
