Technical Reports of INESAP

The INESAP Technical Report series is an official INESAP project that was proposed by André Gsponer (ISRI, Geneva) in June 1997. His motivations in pushing for the creation of this series were:

  • there is a considerable lack of professional understanding of the scientific and technical aspects of the nuclear arms race, especially within the NGO's, the academic world and the public;
  • there is a urgent need for a peer reviewed publication series on a professional level which deal with nuclear weapons and other non-conventional weapons, especially because the few significant journals of this type are american and therefore partially biased;
  • INESAP should NOT start dispersing in all directions like many NGO do, but do a few things that are both important and typical of its specificity.

INESAP Technical Reports are a series of high-quality, peer-reviewed scientific analyses relating to arms control, disarmament and non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. Its goal is to improve the quality of independent scientific knowledge on technical issues of importance for shaping new policy initiatives. Everybody is invited to submit reports to be reviewed for publication in this series.
