The CCTC is research unit of Carleton University in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, established in 2005 to focus on treaty compliance. The aim of the Centre is to conduct policy-oriented research into the theory and practice of compliance in respect of international treaties, resolutions, agreements and arrangements. Its principal research focus is the monitoring, verification and enforcement of arms control principles in existing and future international instruments. This includes but is not limited to research on nuclear, biological, chemical, radiological, conventional and space weapons. Its research also extends to compliance in other treaty regimes and how novel approaches from other disciplines may be applied to arms control.
