About this book

The events of September 11 2001 have altered the course of arms control intended to eliminate weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and has made the role of international organizations controversial. Whether they can effectively verify compliance with the WMD treaty regime has now been questioned by the United States. In responding to this basic question, Eliminating Weapons of Mass Destruction examines how existing organizations apply the main verification tools, how they can improve and consolidate them where possible in order to meet the new security challenges more effectively.

Reviews

'This is a timely study and one that has emerged from the combination of an extensive examination of literature and a rich practical experience of how the issue of international verification of the elimination of weapons of mass destruction has been handled in the relevant international organizations and the Security Council. It contains a wealth of information and constructive ideas.' - Hans Blix, Former Executive Chairman of The United Nations Monitoring, Verification and Inspection Commission, Director-General Emeritus of the International Atomic Energy Agency, from the Foreword

'This is a very useful contribution to the field of WMD non-proliferation and I am confident that it will be read with great interest by both students and practitioners' - Mohammed ElBaradei, Director-General of the International Atomic Energy Agency
