About this Item

[4], 19, [1] pages. Notes. Map. Distribution letter and News release laid in. George Bunn (May 26, 1925 - April 21, 2013) was an American diplomat, lawyer, and nonproliferation expert. He drafted the legislation that created the U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency, was one of the lead U.S. negotiators of the nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty, served as Dean of the law school at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and spent the last two decades of his career at the Center for International Security and Cooperation at Stanford University. Bunn served on the Board of Directors of the Arms Control Association and was one of the founders of what eventually became known as the Lawyers Alliance for World Security. In 2009, he received a lifetime achievement award for his work on nuclear disarmament and nonproliferation from the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies at the Monterey Institute for International Studies. Bunn was the author, co-author, or co-editor of books and articles. The Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT) contains a special mechanism to promote its entry into force - a conference designed to facilitate this objective takes place every other year. While its official designation is the Conference on Facilitating Entry into Force of the CTBT, it is more commonly known as the "Article XIV conference" in accordance with the relevant Treaty article. The participating States typically negotiate and issue a joint statement urging States that have not yet signed or ratified the Treaty to do so. The significant worldwide support for the CTBT is reflected in the fact that the Article XIV conferences have always succeeded in adopting final documents, whereas most other international fora in this field have failed to do so. Particular focus is traditionally on the so-called Annex 2 States, whose ratification is required for the Treaty's entry into force. These were defined as countries that participated in the CTBT's negotiations and had reached a "nuclear capable" status, i.e. were in possession of nuclear power or research reactors by 1996, the final year of the negotiations. The Treaty identifies 44 of these countries in Annex 2. Bookseller Inventory # 75095
