Administrative history

The NPT was hailed as a landmark treaty, offering a solution to a complicated set of problems facing the world at the time. Prior to the NPT, more than 20 countries were actively seeking nuclear weapons. The NPT created a legal framework defining nuclear weapon possessor and non-possessor states, and providing the context for their cooperation on all three pillars.

The Treaty is founded on three pillars: non-proliferation; disarmament; and peaceful use of nuclear weapons. Many of the records focus on US-USSR negotiations on Articles I and II of the Treaty regarding stopping the spread of nuclear weapons, and talks about Article III, on safeguards.

Scope and content

Volume 1 of the collection highlights 31 so called “Private Records,” detailing the views of NATO Allies during informal sessions. This volume is key to understanding the high level positions of many nations on the topic of disarmament, as well as bilateral conversations between NATO members and the USSR.
Many Private Records include discussion about multiple topics, not all having to do with disarmament or the NPT.
