This International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) Strategic Dossier provides a comprehensive assessment of the Pakistani nuclear program from which the Khan network emerged, the network's proliferation activities, and the illicit trade in fissile materials. The report also reviews the history of clandestine nuclear procurement activities by other states, along with the efforts made by Pakistan and other countries to prevent the reoccurrence of proliferation networks and to secure nuclear technology, and assesses policy options for further action.
