'Keep Calm and Carry On' An Initial African Assessment of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) 2010 Review Conference

"On 28 May 2010, 190 States Parties to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) adopted a final document at its 8th Review Conference (RevCon) held at the United Nations (UN) Headquarters in New York. This paper makes an initial attempt to digest the final document from an African perspective, and to examine whether it truly presents an important step in ridding the world, once and for all, of nuclear weapons."
