The Chemical Weapons Convention entered into force on 29 April 1997, and the major player, being the United States, ratified it shortly before that date. The system being both new and complex, there is a considerable need for interpretation and explanation. In order to make the CWC really work, additional measures of implementation are needed. These two problems are addressed by the various contributions presented in this book, which is the result of a common research project of three teams directed by the three editors. It reviews the history of the negotiations and then presents a thorough analysis of the major features of the Convention: the organization (OPCW), the verification regime, dispute settlement and reactions to non-compliance.
