Palais d’Egmont, Brussels – 13|14 December 2019

The Conference, in its 8th edition, is a major international event that gathers every year non-proliferation and disarmament experts from governmental and non-governmental institutions worldwide. Over the course of two days, participants engage in an open discussion, covering issues related to arms control, disarmament, non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (WMD), their delivery systems, and small arms and light weapons (SALWs). The aim of the Conference is to contribute to the implementation of the EU Global Strategy by providing recommendations on EU non-proliferation and disarmament policies.

The event is organized by the Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI) on behalf of the EU Non-Proliferation and Disarmament Consortium, which was established in 2010 by a EU Council Decision to promote a network of European independent think tanks working on non-proliferation and disarmament issues.
