About the product

Nuclear-weapon-free zones are a key component of the international nuclear non-proliferation regime. With the Declaration on the Denuclearization of Africa adopted in 1964, African states were among the first to decide on the denuclearization of their region. However, implementation of the declaration was delayed by South Africa's perilous nuclear weapons programme and their policy of apartheid. This book provides comprehensive details of the negotiations that lead to the conclusion of the Treaty of Pelindaba: The African Nuclear-Weapon-Free Zone.
