Addressing the 5th Review Conference of the Meeting of the High Contracting Parties to the Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons (CCW) on Monday (12th December) Mrs.
* 1980 Protocol III on prohibitions or restrictions on the use of incendiary weapons to the un convention on prohibitions or restrictions on the use of certain conventional weapons which may be deemed to be excessively injurious or to have indiscriminate effects;
11 (BNA): Based on Law 1/2016 ratified and issued by His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa , Bahrain's Permanent Representative to the United Nations in New York, Ambassador Jamal Faris Al Ruwaie, today deposited the instrument of the Kingdom's accession to Convention on Prohibitions or Restrictions on the Use of Certain Conventional Weapons Which May be Deemed to be Excessively Injurious or to Have Indiscriminate Effects, endorsed in Geneva in October 1980, alongside its third, fourth and fifth protocols, with the conventions' depository at the UN headquarters.
It's a meeting of diplomats, arms control experts, and ethics and human rights specialists who, if they agree that this is a real threat, will put it on the agenda of the next November's annual meeting of the countries that have signed the Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons (CCW).
Of particular note in the context of efforts to ban autonomous weapons systems, the Preamble to the Certain Conventional Weapons Convention of 1980 (CCW) (35) repeats the Martens Clause sentiment that "in cases not covered by [international agreements] the civilian population and the combatants shall at all times remain under the protection and authority of the principles of international law derived from established custom, from the principles of humanity and from the dictates of public conscience." (36) On its face, this language extends well past the original aspiration of the Martens Clause to protect civilians resisting occupation.
By agreeing to keep talking, the 118 nations that are part of the Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons, an existing international treaty, acknowledged the unease that the idea of such weapons causes for the public.
Certain Conventional Weapons Convention (CCW) at a Glance,"
A first of its kind, and the first time the UN has agreed to a major treaty to control conventional weapons since the 1980 Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons, it is being praised by many as a much needed start to protecting vulnerable people; however, it does have its limits.
In addition, 111 have signed the Convention on Cluster Munitions, and 81 States have consented to be bound by Protocol V on Explosive Remnants of War of the Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons. 127 nations have ratified the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
(5.) United Nations, Convention on Prohibitions or Restrictions on the Use of Certain Conventional Weapons Which May Be Deemed to Be Excessively Injurious or to Have Indiscriminate Effects, Protocol IV on Blinding Laser Weapons, Article 1, negotiated and adopted in Vienna, October 13, 1995, says, "It is prohibited to employ laser weapons specifically designed, as their sole combat function or as one of their combat functions, to cause permanent blindness to unenhanced vision, that is to the naked eye or to the eye with corrective eyesight devices.
In the 1970s several conferences were held to strengthen the Geneva Conventions, and out of these emerged, in 1980, the Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons (CCW; also known as the 'Inhuman Weapons Convention'), which had weak rules.
It also discusses the two current, but competing, treaties on the subject: the 1980 United Nations Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons, which was signed by the United States, and the more restrictive 1997 Ottawa Treaty, which the United States did not sign.
