Strengthening the Nuclear Test Ban in Southeast Asia

The Center for Strategic & International Studies has published an article on how ASEAN Member States contribute to the CTBTO and its International Monitoring System (IMS). While 12 IMS stations already exist in the region and nine of 10 ASEAN Member States have ratified the treaty, the article states that “ASEAN should be all in on the test ban.” The article outlines specific ways that Southeast Asian States can “upgrade their national capabilities to enhance verification, which will not just improve nuclear test detection and deterrence in the region and beyond, but will also offer opportunities to save lives from deadly natural disasters”. Find out more about the benefits of the verification regime by reading the article here.
