Note on COVID-19:
The current pandemic has also affected the planning of events organised by the EU Non-proliferation and Disarmament Consortium. The current status is as follows:
– The visit of the UN Disarmament Fellows to Brussels is usually held in September. In assessing the situation surrounding COVID-19, the UN Office for Disarmament Affairs decided to cancel the Fellows program this year. As a result, a visit to Brussels will not be organised.
– The ad-hoc seminar on non-proliferation and disarmament education, to which all university-affiliated Network members were invited, could not take place in person in June as envisaged. We held a virtual event on 23 and 24 June, which will be followed by an in person event in Brussels as soon as this becomes possible.
– The 9th edition of the annual EU Non-Proliferation and Disarmament Conference will be held in Brussels, at the Palais d’Egmont, on 12 and 13 November 2020. This year, the Conference will be held in a hybrid form. The Conference will be preceded by the Network Meeting, which will be held in the afternoon of 11 November 2020. This year, the Next Generation Workshop will be held online.
– An ad-hoc seminar on the role of EU and UN peace operations in addressing illicit weapons in conflict areas will be held on 30 November 2020, in a hybrid form (event by invitation only).
