Studies, education and information

Studies on various aspects of disarmament have been carried out over the years by the Secretary-General pursuant to relevant General Assembly resolutions on the subject. Most have been conducted with the assistance of governmental experts, appointed by him, on the basis of equitable geographical distribution, and with the help of Member States in a position to render such assistance. The studies serve two purposes: to provide a deeper understanding of disarmament and related matters, and to support the negotiating process through analysis of specific matters related to negotiations in progress or about to start.
