Promoting Middle East security through research, dialogue, arms control, non-proliferation, and disarmament.
Efforts to establish a Weapons of Mass Destruction-Free Zone in the Middle East have been ongoing for decades, and the need to achieve this goal remains as important as ever.
UNIDIR’s Middle East WMD-Free Zone Project enhances analytical and technical capacity to develop novel perspectives on regional security in the Middle East. By conducting in-depth analyses of past, present, and future initiatives and engaging in inclusive dialogue with policymakers and experts, we generate innovative ideas to advance the WMD-Free Zone in the Middle East.
