This chapter considers the relevance of international law to the policies of states relative to WMD proliferation, with particular consideration of the arguable shifting of some states' policies away from an emphasis on combating WMD proliferation through the facilitating rules and diplomatic networks embodied in these various sources of non-proliferation law, and toward a greater emphasis on combating WMD proliferation through more forceful, proactive, and often unilateral or small-coalition-based counterproliferation policies. An overview of Chapters 7 to 9 is also presented.
