Kill the NPT Collapse Thesis

The Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) is often alleged to be at risk of “crumbling” or "damaged beyond repair”. Kjølv Egeland, Fellow at the Norwegian Academy of International Law, argues that this fear-mongering is unfounded. The NPT is one of the most widely supported international agreements that exist today. The challenge facing its supporters is not damage-limitation or “protecting what we’ve got” but extending the disarmament norm.
