This chapter presents three case studies that analyze the interplay between hard and soft law in the area of multilateral arms control, from nuclear weapons to land mines. The first study looks at the various key decisions taken by weapons control supplier groups to restrict transfers of specific technology. The second study analyzes the complex interweaving of hard and soft law for the protection of nuclear materials to ensure responsible control over nuclear materials and prevent nuclear weapons proliferation. The third study traces the development of the norm against anti-personnel land mines from soft law to hard law.

Keywords:   international law, soft law, hard law, compliance, weapons control, nuclear weapons, nuclear materials, anti-personnel land mines
