Trained in London as a scholar of public international law, Negm is now a diplomatic at the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Here he assesses the rules and implementation of the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the arrangements of the supplier groups, and international cooperation to transfer nuclear technology, in order to answer a number of questions. Among these are whether the rules are adequate to guarantee the transfer of nuclear technology for peaceful purposes, whether measures are sufficient to prevent the diversion of material from peaceful to military uses, whether there are inherent failures in international rules governing non-proliferation, and how failure in the rules or implementation affects efforts to establish a nuclear weapon free zone in the Middle East.
