VERTIC releases report on illicit trafficking of nuclear and radioactive material

VERTIC has released a timely report analysing the legal instruments that currently underpin efforts to tackle the illicit trafficking of nuclear and other radioactive material.

The report - 'Illicit Trafficking of Nuclear and other Radioactive Material: The Legislative Response' examines a range of treaties and other international instruments to identify which actions and activities are prohibited under these agreements and to provide an overview of the current status of international norms relevant to illicit trafficking. The report then considers how states can implement the measures and obligations highlighted in our study into their national legal frameworks and asks how to ascertain how far states have progressed in implementing them.

The report opens with an overview of the nature and scale of the illicit trafficking problem.
