This report explores the concept of the verification of nuclear disarmament in the context of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. The authors show that disarmament in this case will be a cooperative process accompanied by a deep transformation of the disarming state. While technical tools and procedures will continue to play an important role, their primary purpose will be to allow the disarming state to demonstrate its commitment to its disarmament obligations.
