This reports looks at why and how the international community should enhance further the management and enforcement of compliance with the Chemical Weapons Convention. It provides an overview of the status of compliance with the norm against chemical weapons, and sets out the compliance mechanisms that are available under the Convention, outside the Convention, and that can be used by individual States. Finally, the authors suggest six concrete ways in which the different tools for management and enforcement of compliance can be improved.
