Information Leaflet Conference on Disarmament

Geneva is the international center of disarmament diplomacy. The principal multilateral negotiating body on disarmament, the Conference on Disarmament, is based in Geneva. In addition, many disarmament and arms control meetings take place here, such as meetings under the Biological Weapons Convention, the Anti-Personnel Mine Ban Convention and the Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons. Because of this, many non-governmental organizations, think-tanks and lobby groups on disarmament are also represented in Geneva.
