Procedural tyranny continues at the Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons (CCW)

The latest Meeting of High Contracting Parties (HCPs) to the Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons (CCW) met in Geneva from 16-18 November 2022. While the Meeting was able to agree to dates for next year’s work , it failed to meet the urgency around many issues on its agenda, including autonomous weapons, incendiary weapons, and mines other than anti-personnel mines. Once again, a single delegation was able to override the interests and priorities of the vast majority of HCPs. The CCW is turning into a one-state forum, where consensus is wielded as veto and horrific weapons are being used and developed in its wake.
