Out Now: CBWNet Working Paper on the OPCW and Civil Society

The paper by CBWNet Associate Researcher Alexander Ghionis explores key elements of the relationship between the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) and civil society, with the aim of supporting ongoing discussions at OPCW regarding options and mechanisms to enhance that relationship. The paper takes an empirical approach to expand the evidence base available to inform these deliberations. Reflecting on different ‘modes of engagement’ that connect civil society with the OPCW the paper proposes some short-term efforts in several areas that could provide a firm basis to strengthen the OPCW-civil society relationship over the longer-term.
