This book compiles analyses from international scholars on nonproliferation challenges and the future of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). It includes discussions of current (2007) policies of the major nuclear players. Among the topics discussed are assessing the strong and weak points of the NPT, the functionality of present nuclear policies, and the pressures placed on different states by the NPT. The book is divided into four parts. Part I focuses on the shortcomings and development of existing nonproliferation measures. Part II examines proliferators – including Iran, North Korea (DPRK), India, and Pakistan – and the threats or potential threats they represent. Part III investigates how to begin limiting and reducing nuclear risks, through such efforts as the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) and the Fissile Material Cut-off Treaty (FMCT). Part IV assesses the nonproliferation regime’s status and discusses future policy steps to re-establish international common ground and strengthen the nonproliferation regime. The book is a product of an international book project at the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs.
