Our contributors

Data collection and analysis for the Nuclear Weapons Ban Monitor are assisted by a wide range of research institutes and independent experts on international humanitarian law, international human rights law, disarmament law, nuclear disarmament, nuclear arsenals, and security policy.



Every year, Norwegian People's Aid involves new external experts, to enhance the quality, relevance, and legitimacy of the Nuclear Weapons Ban Monitor's research. Each new contributor verifies, builds on, and develops the findings and analysis of previous contributors. The following experts have contributed to the 2021 edition of the Nuclear Weapons Ban Monitor and/or made earlier contributions which the 2021 edition comprises and builds on.
