A new NTI paper, The IAEA’s Safeguards System as the Non-Proliferation Treaty’s Verification Mechanism, explores the creation, evolution, and future of the International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA) nuclear safeguards, the system that underpins the basic foundations of the global nuclear nonproliferation regime. Authors John Carlson, Vladimir Kuchinov, and Thomas Shea, writing as the world marks the 50th anniversary of the entry into force of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT), note that the IAEA safeguards system reinforces NPT states parties commitments to the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons and provides confidence that nuclear energy is used for exclusively peaceful purposes. An enduring and effective safeguards systems, they write, also will be essential to achieve a world free of nuclear weapons.
