Hide / Show Abstract

In 1999, there were a number of issues that had, in most instances, been before the international community for some time, but that, for a variety of reasons, were not directly addressed to any great extent in the different disarmament forums. They were, however, the subject of resolutions in the General Assembly. They are dealt with in this chapter under the title “Other issues”, because they do not lend themselves to placement in any of the topical chapters of this volume, nor do they share a common theme among themselves. This chapter thus covers: outer space; the role of science and technology, new weapons of mass destruction; information security; the relationship between disarmament and development; and arms limitation and disarmament agreements: observance of environmental norms in the drafting and implementation of treaties.
