About the product
The Department for Disarmament Affairs, renamed United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs in 2007 (UNODA) Occasional Papers is a series of ad hoc publications presenting, in edited form, papers or statements made at meetings, symposiums, seminars, workshops or lectures that deal with topical issues in the field of arms limitation, disarmament and international security. They are intended primarily for those concerned with these matters in Government, civil society and in the academic community. This publication presents the panel discussion at the 1999 symposium on Missile Development and its Impact on Global Security. Discussions focused on the future of the missile technology control regime (MTCR); no place for missile programmes in South America; missile proliferation and international security; the MTCR, the post-modern State and deterrence; and the missile threat: perceptions and prescriptions.
