Drawing on the authors’ first-hand experiences as members of NAM observer-state delegations in NPT and IAEA negotiations, as well as the findings of a larger CNS research project on NAM nuclear politics, the book will provide important new insights about how a small subset of NAM states has tended to dominate NAM ...

Overview

The Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) is the largest and most diverse political grouping of states engaged on issues related to nuclear nonproliferation and disarmament.

Drawing on the authors’ first-hand experiences as members of NAM observer-state delegations in NPT and IAEA negotiations, as well as the findings of a larger CNS research project on NAM nuclear politics, the book will provide important new insights about how a small subset of NAM states has tended to dominate NAM politics and have promoted policies that are often at odds with those advanced by Western states on issues such as nuclear terrorism, IAEA safeguards, nuclear export controls, multinational fuel arrangements, proliferation in the Middle East, NPT, and nuclear arms control and disarmament. Based on an analysis of NAM perspectives, politics, and priorities, the book will provide practical recommendations for engaging NAM members in a more constructive fashion on issues related to nuclear nonproliferation, disarmament, peaceful use, and counter-nuclear terrorism. Particular attention will be given to problems likely to be encountered when Iran assumes the chairmanship of NAM in 2012 and how these difficulties can best be mitigated in the lead up to the next NPT Review Conference.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
‘The Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) is one of the largest and oldest political groupings. Standing apart from the big military powers it has a tradition of support for disarmament. Where it succeeds in maintaining cohesion despite its diverse membership it weighs heavily in the decision making process — not least by its large membership (120 states). This excellent study is based on personal experience, interviews and documents, and gives us a much needed knowledge of the workings and records of the group.’ Hans Blix, Director General Emeritus of the IAEA, Former Chairman of the United Nations Monitoring, Verification and Inspection Commission (UNMOVIC) for Iraq

‘A unique and an exceptional source of accurate information and in-depth analysis of NAM's 50-year struggle for a world free of nuclear weapons. It should guide us in approaching the convening of the 2012 Conference on the establishment of a zone free of nuclear weapons and all other weapons of mass destruction in the Middle East, as well as during the NPT Review Conference of 2015 and its preparatory phase beginning in the spring of 2012.’ Ambassador Mohamed I. Shaker, Chairman of the Board of the Egyptian Council for Foreign Affairs and President of the 1985 NPT Review Conference

‘It is surprising that NAM has received so little attention from Western scholars. Filling the gap is this book on NAM's nuclear politics. Based on scholarly research and enriched by direct personal experience in NPT conferences, it reveals a depth of understanding rare in Western research. It should receive the careful attention of policymakers and commentators on the influential coalition of nations that comprise NAM.’ Ambassador Jayantha Dhanapala, President of the 1995 NPT Review and Extension Conference and former UN Undersecretary-General for Disarmament

‘An indispensable guide to the labyrinthine politics of the NAM as it struggles to reconcile traditional collective positions with ever more diverse national interests. It makes a compelling plea for a better informed and more sophisticated understanding of what makes the movement tick, and why - notwithstanding the apparent anachronism of 'non-alignment' in the post-Cold War world - NAM will continue to matter in multilateral nuclear forums.’ Gareth Evans, Chancellor of the Australian National University and former Australian Foreign Minister

‘The Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) is a significant, but mysterious, player in the nuclear non-proliferation treaty (NPT) regime. Potter and Mukhatzhanova pull away the veil of secrecy behind which NAM diplomats have developed their negotiating positions, issued their demands, and made their final compromises at NPT meetings. This short book is an important contribution to our understanding of the intricate politics of nuclear diplomacy.’ Dr. Scott D. Sagan, The Caroline S.G. Munro Professor of Political Science, Stanford University

‘William Potter and Gaukhar Mukhatzhanova provide an extensive, nuanced, and illuminating analysis of a significant actor in the NPT context. They explore the complex dynamics within the non-aligned movement and the often influential role that it plays in key institutions of the NPT regime. This book is a must-read for anyone with a serious interest in nuclear nonproliferation. It is a unique and impressive contribution to the literature.’ Dr. Steven Miller, Harvard University
