Spring 2018 marks the 30-year anniversary of the chemical attacks in Halabja in Iraqi Kurdistan in which thousands of Kurdish civilians were killed. More recently, chemical attacks in the Syrian cities of Ghouta and Khan Shyakhun killed hundreds of civilians. Two distinguished experts will explore the validity of chemical weapons taboo, U.S. and international reaction to the usage in Iraq and Syria, and ongoing attempts to control and dismantle them.
