The proliferation of weapons of mass destruction as well as their means of delivery constitutes a grave threat to international peace and security. In light of the important measures adopted in recent years in combating money laundering and terrorist financing, the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of Luxembourg organises an international seminar particularly dedicated to Combating Proliferation Finance.

The seminar will be held on 24th March 2016 in a conference room at the "European Convention Centre Luxembourg" (ECCL) in Luxembourg-Kirchberg. In order to foster a broad exchange of views and ideas, Chatham House Rules will apply.

The seminar's objective will be to seek a better understanding of the phenomenon of Proliferation Finance and to examine the methods used by authors of such activities and their accomplices. It is proposed that the seminar addresses the following key topics:
- The challenges that Proliferation Finance poses to States and economic operators;
- Experiences of economic operators "on the ground";
- The international legal framework;
- Practical cases - national and international - illustrating the responses of the States in combating the financing of proliferation
