Practical Aspects of Nuclear Disarmament Verification

27 April 2018, Geneva, Switzerland

This side-event, to be held during the 2018 NPT PrepCom in Geneva, will introduce UNIDIR's ongoing research on nuclear disarmament verification. Presenters will discuss the political and technical challenges that must be addressed in the development of any mechanisms to enable reliable verification of one of the key elements of disarmament—removal of nuclear weapons from a State, territory, or facility—done as part of the weapons consolidation and subsequent elimination process.

Support from UNIDIR's core funders provides the foundation for all of the Institute's activities.

In addition, dedicated project funding was received from Estonia and Finland for “Verifying the Absence of Nuclear Weapons” activities and from Carnegie Corporation of New York and the MacArthur Foundation for "New approaches to transparency in nuclear security and disarmament" activities.

This conference is part of the project Verifying the Absence of Nuclear Weapons
