This Brief supports the VERTIC Verification and Monitoring Programme project ‘Building Capacity on Multilateral Verification of Nuclear Disarmament’, funded by the Norwegian Government. The project supports the development and strengthening of practical and effective nuclear disarmament verification (NDV) measures for the achievement and maintenance of a world without nuclear weapons.

The Brief reviews recent UN Resolutions in this realm, reports on former and current international governmental efforts towards NDV, and analyses the current status of NDV education, research, and international initiatives. The Brief also addresses the possibility of establishing an international NDV network of universities, governmental and non-governmental research and technical institutes and other stakeholders. Finally, the Brief finally argues how such a network could be useful in providing further support to the work of the Group of Governmental Experts (GGE) on the role of verification in advancing nuclear disarmament and, should it be established, a Group of Scientific and Technical Experts (GSTE).
