NPIHP is pleased to announce the largest ever release of documents on South Africa’s nuclear history.

These documents were released following a ground-breaking conference organized and hosted by Monash University South Africa, in cooperation with the Institute for Security Studies (ISS Africa) and NPIHP held in December, 2012. The documents were collected and contributed by conference participants who used them in support of their own research. This collection covers the full swath of South African nuclear history, from the origins of the country’s nuclear energy research in the 1950s, through the early 1990s when it announced the existence and subsequent destruction of its nuclear program.

The collection is available on the History and Public Policy Program's Digital Archive.
