This work is about the role of international law in the arms control process. It discusses the law of arms control as a special branch of international law and covers the following topics: the place of the law of arms control in the system of international law and politics, special characteristics of arms control law, the international legal framework of supervision in the law of arms control, general features of supervisory mechanisms in all multilateral arms control treaties currently in force, case studies on the CWC, IAEA safeguards system and CTBT, and enforcement of the law of arms control. As such, this study provides a comprehensive theory and model for the analysis of supervisory mechanisms in arms control treaties and offers an in-depth overview of the law of arms control as it stands in the post Cold War situation. The book should be of interest to international lawyers as well as political scientists and policy-makers.
