Asser Institute

Asser Institute (Netherlands)

The T.M.C. Asser Instituut conducts fundamental and independent policy-oriented research and organises critical and constructive reflection on international and European legal developments, at the interface of academia, legal practice and governance.

The new International Arms Control Law Hub in The Hague will stimulate national and international academic and policy debate, build interlinkages between practice and academia, and facilitate the regular exchange of knowledge about the control of existing and new weapons systems between the relevant Dutch ministries, civil society, the academic community, and other international organisations based in The Netherlands, such as the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.
