This book contains an up-to-date analysis on the legal aspects of nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament. It scrutinizes the effectiveness, the limits, the adaptation, and the future challenges of the regime on the control of nuclear weapons which is still based on the 1968 Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) and supported by the IAEA controls. It also deals with new challenges to the non-proliferation legal order deriving mainly from new nuclear weapon states, the North Korean withdrawal from the NPT, the Iranian nuclear programs, activities of non-state actors, the easier access of states and other entities to sensitive materials, the still remote entry into force of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty and the debate on a fissile material cut-off treaty. As nuclear proliferation and disarmament are among the main threats to international peace and security, this publication is also of interest outside the circle of academics and practitioners in the field.

Target group

Academics and professionals in the field of public international and political sciences, with specific interest in the legal aspects of nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation
