NTI’s Global Security Newswire on public debate in the U.S. on CTBT

In a two-article series, Global Security Newswire’s editor-in-chief Chris Schneidmiller provides an in-depth analysis of the current state of U.S.-internal discussions on the ratification of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty.

In the first article, emphasis is given to the question of the effectiveness of the CTBTO’s verification system. It also gives an historical overview of nuclear testing and of U.S. involvement in efforts to curb nuclear testing and highlights the role of the U.S. Stockpile Stewardship program.

The second article examines the different views in the U.S. Congress regarding a possible CTBT ratification. It discusses the significance of the U.S.’s role in driving the treaty towards ratification and presents the opinions of key figures.
