Fresh Ideas for the Future: Symposium on the NPT

| April 26, 2015

Nuclear Disarmament, Non-proliferation, and Energy

On April 28, the Project on Managing the Atom joined the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies, The Netherlands government, and the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs in convening nuclear nonproliferation experts from around the world at the United Nations to participate in a symposium on the Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT).

The symposium aimed to accomplish two goals. The first was to present and discuss cutting-edge scholarly research on issues with which delegates to the 2015 NPT Review Conference must grapple. The intent was to facilitate sound decision-making at the Review Conference by offering creative but practical conceptual innovations, critical analysis, and empirical evidence drawn from academic research. The second major purpose was to expose early-career academic researchers to the review process, where they would have an opportunity to share their research findings and interact with practitioners. The abstracts in this booklet summarise the research presented at the symposium.
