EXPLORING DISTRIBUTED LEDGER TECHNOLOGY FOR ARMS CONTROL AND NON-PROLIFERATION: A PRIMER

On 10 September, this guidance was produced by the UN Institute for Disarmament Research (UNIDIR), saying that the intrinsic characteristics of distributed ledger technology (DLT) platforms, combined with over a decade of successful development and deployment of this technology in a variety of sectors, make it a particularly relevant opportunity for international security and, more specifically, for arms control and non-proliferation.  The paper provides a brief overview of DLT, including its main characteristics, benefits and risks, as well as its potential applications and utility in the context of arms control and non-proliferation.
