NIS Nuclear Trafficking Collection
The NIS Nuclear Trafficking Collection highlights proliferation-significant cases of nuclear materials diversion, and includes abstracts on all reported instances of trafficking in nuclear and radioactive materials in or from the Newly Independent States from 1991 to 2012 (with the most detailed converage, including summary tables found on this page, provided for the years 2005 to 2012). As of December 2012, this resource is no longer being updated.
The collection features summaries and analysis of relevant articles and reports. The information in the abstracts is taken from open sources and presented on an as-reported basis, meaning that the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies cannot independently verify the reported facts in the abstracts.
