Projects: Currently, INESAP focuses on the following issues: 

  • The independent Group of Scientific Experts on the detection of clandestine nuclear-weapons-usable materials production (iGSE) addresses the most significant gap and largest challenge for verification of nuclear non-proliferation: the detection of clandestine weapons-usable materials production. The iGSE has been formed to develop and demonstrate technologies and procedures for remote environmental sampling for clandestine nuclear-weapons-usable materials production and other novel methodologies.

  • The nuclear Non-Proliferation-Treaty (NPT) aims at preventing the spread of nuclear weapons and weapons technology, promoting cooperation in the peaceful uses of nuclear energy, and furthering nuclear disarmament. The Treaty is the only binding commitment in a multilateral treaty to the goal of disarmament by the nuclear weapon states. Since 1995, INESAP has participated in and contributed to all Prepatory Committee meetings and Review Conferences of the Treaty. (more…).
  • In 1996, three non-governmental organizations – IALANA, INESAP, and IPPNW – drafted a model Nuclear Weapons Convention “outlining what a nuclear weapons convention could look like and exploring the roads to a nuclear-weapons-free world.” Costa Rica submitted the mNWC to the United Nations Secretary General in 1997 (UN Doc. A/C.1/52/7).

Eleven years later, at the Prepatory Committee meeting of the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, the three organizations launched a revised version of the mNWC, which has been introduced to the United Nations General Assembly by Costa Rica and Malaysia (UN DOC A/62/650). In their accompanying letter dated Dec. 17, 2007, the two countries explain that “This revised model takes into account relevant technical, legal and political developments since 1997. … It is submitted as a work in progress setting forth legal, technical and political elements for the establishment and maintenance of a nuclear-weapon-free world.” …(more).
