Larry MacFaul presents on verification in Vienna

On 13 December 2012 VERTIC Senior Researcher Larry MacFaul presented to diplomats from a range of countries in Vienna on the subject of ‘Verification: how we can use it and what it can do’. The presentation was delivered at the Vienna Center for Disarmament and Non-Proliferation (VCDNP), as part of a VCDNP-run course on nuclear disarmament.
In his presentation, available for download here, Mr MacFaul discussed the fundamental tenets of verification, before addressing various examples of verification in practice—specifically as it has been applied to states’ nuclear activities and nuclear disarmament. The presentation looks at the UK-Norway Initiative on disarmament verification and options for the verification of a Fissile Material Cut-off Treaty, discussing the key elements and main complications of both.
