In this paper, I study the Programme for Promoting Nuclear Non-Proliferation (PPNN), which provided the prime platform for discussing matters of nuclear non-proliferation starting from the 1980s up until the late 1990s. Using newly available archival materials, as well as private papers from the group’s key participants, the paper illuminates the case of the PPNN as a specific platform for the creation and spread of non-proliferation knowledge. The paper also analyses methods for spreading such knowledge, and demonstrates how the group functioned from within.
