Abstract

How can countries verify compliance with the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT) and detect and deter violations? How can the dramatic developments since the end of the 20th century in science and technology provide countries improved or even new tools? How can states,by adopting new concepts and procedures, efficiently monitor areas of interest or concern to them, individually or together with other countries? These are the issues addressed in this book, written at a time when the political developments seem to favor a decline in the role of nuclear weapons and a priority placed on entry into force of the CTBT. This book aims to provide constructive input to countries around the world on how they could arrange their efforts to verify compliance with the CTBT and how they could cooperate with other countries in fulfilling their functions as states parties in an efficient, cost-effective manner
