Green Cross International Environmental Security and Sustainability Director Paul Walker will lecture at the Annual Summer Programme on Disarmament and Non-Proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction in a Changing World this September in The Hague. This initiative, first launched in August 2010 by the T.M.C Asser Instituut and the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, is meant to inspire interest among the younger generation in WMD demilitarisation and non-proliferation as part of the larger process of maintaining global peace and security.
It is designed for professionals working for the government, (semi) governmental organisations, think tanks addressing WMD concerns, national export control bodies, national authorities for the implementation of the CWC (and BWC), national nuclear (energy) agencies, and research centres in related disciplines.
Walker will also give the memorial lecture on behalf of Arend Meerburg, the late former senior official in arms control, disarmament, and nonproliferation in the Dutch Foreign Ministry.
