Arms Control and Disarmament Law

Stuart Casey-Maslen


Arms control and disarmament are key elements in promoting international peace and security. In recent decades, the scope of disarmament law has broadened from a traditional focus on weapons of mass destruction to encompass conventional weapons. This new volume provides a concise and objective appraisal of international arms control and disarmament law. Across seven concise chapters, the book traces the history of arms control and disarmament in the modern era, addressing the issues surrounding biological and chemical weapons, the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons, and conventional weapon and arms transfer regimes. It concludes by considering how, in order to remain relevant, disarmament and arms control will need to adapt to rapidly evolving technologies that defy traditional means of verification and control. The book is an accessible, go-to source for practising international lawyers, judges and arbitrators, government and military officers, scholars, teachers, and students.
