Training date
Registration deadline


Contributing to Regional and Global Security through Disarmament and Non-proliferation

In a region prone to military responses to security challenges, awareness of past arms control efforts and initiatives is crucial to crafting effective ways of addressing security threats. This course aims to build the capacity of a new generation of arms control practitioners who will be involved in the implementation of international disarmament and non-proliferation instruments in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. Thinking critically and innovatively is crucial, as this region in particular requires taking into consideration the interrelationships between arms proliferation and a wide range of other security challenges, such as terrorism, state failure, organised crime, uncontrolled migration, and technological developments.

Who should attend

The course is designed for both:

  • civilian and,
  • military government officials
  • who are in charge of arms control policy at the decision-making and implementation levels.
