HOW CAN PROMOTING PEACEFUL USES HELP?
This paper focuses on how increased cooperation on peaceful uses can help to restore the balance between the three pillars of the NPT. It argues for investment in peaceful uses and contributions to the IAEA’s TC activities through both the TC programme and the Peaceful Uses Initiative (PUI). Budget constraints prevent the IAEA from meeting the needs of all its member states. Therefore, such investment will expand developing countries’ access to peaceful uses by improving the IAEA’s ability to transfer such technology and know-how to its member states.
