The objective of this survey is to provide a general overview of past and present verification activities and proposals relevant to the elimination of nuclear weapons. We look beyond the current debate on nuclear disarmament towards the development of the mechanisms required to provide assurances that a nuclear-weapon-free world can be achieved and maintained. Reaching these objectives will be challenging, but, as the paper shows, feasible.
