Stanton Nuclear Security Fellow Karthika Sasikumar will present an MTA seminar entitled "From Target to Designer: Multilateral Export Controls and Safeguards in Indian Nuclear Policy" on Tuesday April 26 at 9:30am in the Belfer Center library.

This talk is about measures that India has taken to contain the diffusion of the materials and technology for nuclear weapons and their delivery systems. I will talk about export controls that form barriers to the outward flow of materials and technology from India, as well as safeguards that are designed to prevent flows from the civilian nuclear program—a recipient of foreign assistance—to the Indian weapons program. I will also discuss India’s participation in international arrangements to restrict such sensitive flows that are outside traditional nonproliferation institutions (e.g. the Proliferation Security Initiative).
