The Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty: Regulating Nuclear Weapons around the World
Middleton, Tiffany Willey
Social Education, v74 n2 p92-97 Mar-Apr 2010
In May 2010, scientists, national security experts, and state delegates from nations around the world will convene in New York for the 2010 Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference. They will review current guidelines for nuclear testing and possession of nuclear weapons in accordance with the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty of 1968, which recognized nations as Nuclear Weapons States and Non Nuclear Weapons States. During the review, officials will consider recommendations for changes to policy, discuss recent world events involving nuclear testing--especially by Non Nuclear Weapons States--and monitor progress toward a nuclear free world, as outlined in Article VI of the treaty. This article presents an interview with three experts: (1) Jonathan Granoff, chair, American Bar Association Task Force on Nuclear Non-Proliferation and president of the Global Security Institute; (2) Paul Ingram, executive director of the British American Security Information Council; and (3) Peter Weiss, president of the Lawyer's Committee on Nuclear Policy and vice president of the International Association of Lawyers Against Nuclear Weapons. In the interview, the three experts discuss the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, the upcoming conference, and the legal issues surrounding nuclear weapons. (Contains 4 resources.)
