Iraq started dismantling its WMD programmes in 1991. So why did the regime continue to act as if it had something to hide?
Join us on 13 November for a keynote lecture by Dr. Målfrid Braut-Hegghammer, Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Oslo, to find out. The lecture is hosted by UCL’s Global Governance Institute (GGI).
