We are pleased to announce the appointment of Prof. Dr. Thilo Marauhn as Extraordinary Professor of International Arms Control Law at the Amsterdam Law School (University of Amsterdam). Marauhn will conduct research on international arms control agreements and their compliance. The new Chair was established on behalf of the T.M.C. Asser Instituut for International and European Law and with the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to the Netherlands.
In addition to research on chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear security (CBRN), Marauhn will monitor compliance with existing arms control treaties and their practical implementation in the domestic legal space. His research focus will be on critically reviewing existing approaches and examining perspectives for improving and further developing arms control law. From The Hague-based Asser Institute, Marauhn will set up and coordinate a national research network and a knowledge hub.
