Disarmament studies concluded in 1980 and studies in progress

Disarmament studies have two basic purposes. First, they provide information of a general nature to facilitate both understanding of the problems of the arms race and disarmament and, secondly, they support the negotiating process through the analysis of specific matters related to negotiations in progress. The United Nations has carried out such studies since the early 1960s, most of them with the assistance of consultants or governmental experts appointed by the Secretary-General or experts appointed directly by Governments. In addition, the United Nations Secretariat has made analyses having the characteristics of studies at the request of various bodies.
