Confidence-building measures and new missile technologies

Web conference

Date: July 6, 2021 from 14:00 to 15:30


FRS is pleased to invite you to a webinar entitled "Confidence-building measures and new missile technologies", which will be held online on Tuesday, July 06, from 02:00 pm to 03:30 pm (CET).

This webinar will be held under the framework of the EU-funded project on HCoC which is implemented by FRS.

The Hague Code of Conduct (HCoC) is a unique set of confidence-building measures dealing with ballistic missiles, whose main benefit is to create transparency on launches and tests and therefore to limit the risk of misinterpretation regarding these activities. Given the ongoing modernisation of systems and the evolution of technologies, there is a need to strengthen the existing framework. This discussion aims at assessing the role played by the Code today, its adaptation to the rise of new missile technologies and the possibilities of negotiating new confidence-building measures based on the experience of the Code.
