United Nations disarmament studies programme

Authorized by General Assembly resolutions, United Nations disarmament studies are carried out by the Secretary-General with the assistance of experts and consultants appointed by him. Since the early 1960s, they have been prepared for a twofold purpose: (a) to assist the negotiating process through the analysis of specific disarmament questions related to negotiations in progress and (b) to provide information which may facilitate better understanding of the problems of the arms race and approaches to disarmament. In 1985, the General Assembly reaffirmed by resolution 40/152 K the value of United Nations studies as a useful means by which important issues in the field of arms limitation and disarmament could be addressed in a comprehensive and detailed manner.
