The foundation of the international effort to stop the proliferation of nuclear weapons is the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty ("NPT"). This Article proceeds in three parts. Part I proposes a new Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Part II contains preliminary observations regarding the Security Council, General Assembly and Zanger Committee provisions of the new treaty and then addresses the basic question of why nations might be willing to scrap the established NPT in favor of this new proposed agreement. Finally, Part III discusses how the advent of international institutions and the increasing incorporation of international law into the framework of domestic, regional and international tribunals may enhance the enforcement of the proposed non-proliferation treaty.
