Disarmament and arms control without verification is possible in principle, but it requires many preconditions. Especially where there is little trust between state actors, clearly formulated and accepted verification measures are an important way of stabilizing relations and reducing the risk of war. Modern technologies can play an important supporting role here, for example, when unmanned systems allow inspectors to “access” hard-to-reach or dangerous terrain, or when AI examines large amounts of data for irregularities. One of CNTR’s goals is therefore to develop creative ideas on how new technologies can advance arms control.
