Studies, education and information

Cver the years, the general assembly has requested the Secretary-General to carry out studies in an effort to deepen and advance its work on a specific disarmament issue. The studies are conducted with the assistance of experts recommended by their governments to ensure appropriate geographic and political balance so that as many perspectives as possible are taken into account. Since 1980, thirty studies have been conducted on a wide-ranging assortment of issues, starting with the first pioneering Comprehensive Study on Nuclear Weapons. Two studies, started in 2001, were completed in 2002: the issue of missiles in all its aspects and disarmament and non-proliferation education.
