INESAP is the International Network of Engineers and Scientists Against Proliferation and was founded in 1993. It is a non-profit, non-governmental network organization with participants from all over the world.
The objectives of the network are to promote non-proliferation and disarmament with regards to weapons of mass destruction and the delivery systems associated with them. Scientists and engineers can play a key role in achieving these objectives; because science and technology play an important role in the development of such weapons but can at the same time contribute to ways of abolishing them.
INESAP promotes critical analyses of technical, scientific and political issues associated with nuclear and other weapons of mass destruction and works to develop disarmament concepts. Its members contribute their scientific expertise to efforts aimed at transforming and strengthening existing arms control and non-proliferation regimes.
INESAP uses an integrated, interdisciplinary and international approach for combining research, networking and action to establish a closer interface between science and policy, to widen the perspective of the public, policy makers and fellow researchers.
