About these proceedings


International treaties requiring binding commitments on the part of the member states and appropriate compliance verification by an international authority constitute a primary assurance against risks posed by the spread of sensitive technologies that can be used to produce weapons of mass destruction or risks posed by climate changes due to global human activities. This book presents in an interdisciplinary manner experts' analyses
and views of existing verification systems: It gives guidelines and advice for the improvement of those systems as well as for new challenges in the field.
