Seminar - Open to the Public

Converting the IAEA to Nonproliferation

Thu., Nov. 17, 2022 | 12:15pm - 2:00pm


Speaker: Mailys Mangin, Associate, Project on Managing the Atom

How can scholars and policymakers explain the IAEA's sudden involvement in nuclear proliferation "crises" from 1990 onwards? This seminar explains the transformations of the IAEA's nuclear non-proliferation activities based on a double transformation of the logic of the situation, or context of action, in which it intervenes. On the one hand, the reconfiguration of the position of the United States on the international scene, and on the other hand, the consequent reconfiguration of the internal struggles in the United States to define "national security," in particular the threat posed by the horizontal proliferation of nuclear weapons.
