Hosted by the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies, Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey

The Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT) marked its twentieth anniversary in 2016. The Vienna Center for Disarmament and Nonproliferation invited current and former diplomats, practitioners, and nongovernmental experts to provide authoritative and critical assessments of the history, evolution, and implementation of the treaty. The purpose of these essays is to stimulate discussion about creative and pragmatic ways for overcoming the existing hurdles to the CTBT’s entry into force. These contributions appear as a special section of the latest issue of the Nonproliferation Review, a peer-reviewed journal produced by the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies of the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey.
