International Export Control Observer

The James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies (CNS) launched the International Export Control Observer (IECO) in September 2005. The IECO replaced the NIS and Asian Export Control Observers and reports on weapons of mass destruction (WMD) export controls in six regions of the world.

The IECO is a monthly newsletter published by CNS in two languages-English and Russian-and covers six regions: the Newly Independent States (NIS), Asia, the Balkans, the Middle East, Africa, and South America.

In April 2007, CNS and the Korea Strategic Trade Institute (KOSTI) began a partnership to offer the Asian Export Control Observer and the International Export Control Observer in Korean. The Korean versions will be posted on the CNS and YesTrade websites, as they become available. Korean versions of a number of issues of the AECO are ready for viewing. More recently, CNS began a partnership with the China Arms Control and Disarmament Association to provide past issues of the Observer in Chinese.

 


Asian Export Control Observer

Beginning in April 2004, the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies published the Asian Export Control Observer on a bi-monthly basis. This publication was devoted to the analysis of WMD export control issues in East and Southeast Asia. It was published online in English for the Asian and international export control community by the Center for Nonproliferation Studies. The Asian Observer addressed recent developments, major changes, and regional cooperation in the export control field.

With the launch of a new publicationthe International Export Control Observer the Center for Nonproliferation Studies published the last issue of the Asian Observer in May 2005. The International Export Control Observer combined the Asian Export Control Observer and the NIS Export Control Observer, and is published monthly.

In November 2005, CNS and the Korea Institute for Industrial Economics and Trade (KIET) began a partnership to offer the Asian Export Control Observer and the International Export Control Observer in Korean. The Korean versions will be posted on the CNS and KIET websites, as they become available.

The NIS Export Control Observer was published monthly by the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies beginning in January 2003, with financial support from the U.S Department of State. This publication was devoted to the analysis of WMD export control issues in the NIS.

With the launch of its new publication, the International Export Control Observer (IECO), CNS published the last issue of the NIS Observer in August 2005. The International Observer is published monthly, and combines the Asian Export Control Observer and the NIS Export Control Observer, and will report on developments in a number of regions, including the NIS, Asia, the Balkans, the Middle East, Africa, and South America.
