Chapter Summary

Most participants to the Conference of Government Experts on the Use of Certain Conventional Weapons held at Lucerne from 24 September to 18 October 1974 had come to realize that a second conference was necessary to pursue the issues which had proved so controversial. Duly convened by the ICRC, a conference with these terms of reference met from 28 January to 26 February 1976 at Lugano, Switzerland. The agenda contained, besides the usual "general debate" and "other business", a list of the various categories of weapon that had also been on the Lucerne agenda: incendiary weapons; delayed-action and treacherous weapons; small-calibre projectiles; blast and fragmentation weapons, and other categories of weapon and new weapons. Under the heading of "blast and fragmentation weapons", two issues attracted special attention: fuel-air explosives, and weapons producing non-detectable fragments.

Keywords: conventional weapons; fuel-air explosives; government experts; ICRC; Lugano conference; non-detectable fragments
