Chapter Summary

This is the introductory chapter of the book, which focuses on assessing the rules and implementation of the The Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT), the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the arrangements of the Supplier Groups and international cooperation to transfer nuclear technology. Israel, the only Nuclear Weapon State(s) (NWS) in the region, claims that the system fails to provide sufficient security assurances. A nuclear Israel triggered the militarisation of the Iraqi nuclear programme. Such was a development that the NPT/ IAEA safeguards failed to timely detect. The book assesses if any amendments are required to the NPT rules in order to bridge up the gaps created by its implementation, and if so, what is the effect of such amendments on establishing an Nuclear Weapon Free Zone (NWFZ) in the Middle East. This chapter presents an overview of how the other chapters of the book are organised.

Keywords: international cooperation; nuclear Israel; nuclear technology; Nuclear Weapon Free Zone (NWFZ)
