IAEA Verification of Military Research and Development
This paper examines the International Atomic Energy Agency's (IAEA) verification of military research and development. The study reviews the IAEA's existing authority to search for weaponization activities and discusses a general strategy for detecting illicit nuclear weapons programs. The author stresses the need to develop a monitoring and verification system that is able to detect weaponization activities at an early stage.
