The Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) prohibits chemical weapons comprehensively and nearly universally. The treaty regime, however, faces challenges posed by the use of chemical warfare agents in Syria and in assassinations as well as by the related political events, among other things. While scientific and technological chemical developments can increase the risk that the existing prohibition may be circumvented, they can also contribute to making chemical weapons control and enforcement of the prohibition more effective.
