Studies, information and training

Since the early 1960s studies on disarmament and arms limitation matters have been made under the auspices of the United Nations for the purposes of facilitating better understanding of the problems of the arms race and of disarmament and to give assistance and support to the negotiating process through an analysis of specific matters related to negotiations in progress. To permit the United Nations to draw on as wide as possible a range of expertise and political outlook, most of the studies have been made with the assistance of consultant or governmental experts appointed by the Secretary-General or by experts appointed directly by Governments. In some cases the United Nations Secretariat has made analyses having the characteristics of studies.
