With the establishment of Urenco in the Treaty of Almelo (1970), the Netherlands, in collaboration with the Federal Republic of Germany and the United Kingdom, took on the shared responsibility of nonproliferation and export control policies of the proliferation-sensitive gas centrifuge process and its resulting product, enriched uranium. With the use of never-before published sources from Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, this dissertation provides a first comprehensive reconstruction of how the Netherlands and her partners gave substance to this responsibility in the Joint Committee, the international political decision-making organ of the Troika.
