ABSTRACT
The author evaluates the chemical weapons (CW) disarmament regime, which is included in the 1997 Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) that aims to destroy all chemical weapons and their facilities. Particular focus is given on the status of arms control instruments amidst an environment that does not support it because it is deemed unable to address in international security threats. The article dismisses this notion saying that the CW disarmament regime is capable of addressing current and potential threats of terrorism, especially chemical warfare.
