Disarmament studies completed in 1981 and studies in progress

Studies on various aspects of the arms race and disarmament have been carried out by the United Nations since the beginning of the 1960s. Most of them have been done with the assistance of consultant or governmental experts appointed by the Secretary-General or, occasionally, experts appointed directly by Governments. The studies serve a twofold purpose: first, they provide general information which facilitates a better 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. In conjunction with these studies, the United Nations Secretariat has also produced, at the request of various bodies, relevant analyses similar in character to studies.
