There is a popular notion that the closer we are to nuclear disarmament the more stringent must be verification arrangements. This notion shapes most of the current work on disarmament verification. But should it? Our report unidir.org/VerifyTPNW takes a look. A thread 1/

I'm pretty pleased with my chapter in this UNDIR report, about the role of secrecy and verification under the TPNW. It was a really interesting question to look at closely, and took me into places that were quite novel for me. unidir.org/sites/default/fil…

This is a really good resource on nuclear disarmament verification, focusing not only on the technical questions but also broader political issues. Bravo @russianforces, @DrNickRitchie, @seb6philippe, @wellerstein, @tkassenova, and Zia Mian. unidir.org/sites/default/fil…

On the train home from the #TPNW1MSP that I slowly realize the full extent of my contribution: In setting two deadlines (10 years for article 4.2 / 90 days for 4.4), member states directly used research findings from me and my colleague Zia Mian. How cool is that... 🤓

At #HINW22, @alxglaser presents the work of @seb6philippe and others involved in the Moruroa Files, which is an investigation of the real impacts of French nuclear tests in the Pacific. Exposure and harms were vastly undercounted. See moruroa-files.org for more details.

Together with my colleagues Zia Mian and Moritz @ohnemax Kütt I contributed to the fissile material section of #SIPRIYearbook. Here is the data as presented at IPFM @fissilematerial site fissilematerials.org/ (new format this year). It's a lot of weapon-usable stuff

I gave an interview to #PolyPod the other day about history, nuclear weapons, and the “promethean discrepancy”. Also touched on the relationship between security policy and the imperative of decarbonisation. Listen here: play.acast.com/s/5e6ea7dce29… via @acast
