Abstract

The Partial Nuclear Test Ban Treaty is considered an early example of bilateral cooperation between the two superpowers in the realm of arms control. Surprisingly, it is rarely mentioned as the key treaty that solved the global environmental crisis of nuclear pollution. This article revisits this issue through the lens of Constructive Environmental Politics, and explores why it is omitted from the list of the most important international environmental regulations.
