State profiles

The Nuclear Weapons Ban Monitor prepares state profiles for each of the 197 states that can become party to global treaties for which the UN Secretary-General is the depositary. The state profiles are categorized according to each state’s position on the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW), and contain summary data on the status of the 197 states in relation to the TPNW as well as other treaties and regimes relating to weapons of mass destruction, including the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT), Nuclear Weapon Free Zone (NWFZ) treaties, the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT), the Partial Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (PTBT), Safeguards Agreements and Additional Protocols with the IAEA, the Biological Weapons Convention (BWC), and the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC), as well as membership in the Conference on Disarmament (CD). They also present an overview of each state’s compliance (for states parties and signatories) or compatibility (for states not party) with the prohibitions of the TPNW, information on latest developments, and relevant further information. Finally, the state profiles of the nuclear-armed states also contain information about their nuclear-weapons systems under development, production and acquisition in 2021, and their nuclear-weapons arsenals at the beginning of 2022.
