Nuclear non-proliferation: challenges and opportunities for the global regime (WP1561)

Nuclear non-proliferation: challenges and opportunities for the global regime (WP1561)

This annual dialogue, a fixture in our calendar since 1996, assessed challenges, opportunities and prospects for the global nuclear non-proliferation regime.

  • How is the political and normative context for non-proliferation changing?
  • What is the non-proliferation agenda for the US Administration?
  • What is the technological and procurement character of the North Korean nuclear challenge, and what mix of responses (sanctions, dialogue, etc) deterrence is most likely to be effective?
  • What future for the JCPOA?
  • How can the tools for countering the proliferation of nuclear technology be optimised?
  • How will the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons affect extended deterrent relationships?
  • What implications for the international nuclear regime in the relationship between China, India and Pakistan?
  • How can the regime architecture and processes be best utilised for success?

There is a very special Alchemy that you manage to create that doesn’t just happen.I think also that there was a real benefit on this occasion from the diverse voices and experiences that you insured were represented around the table. It’s wonderful when you are able at WP to reach out and bring experience … into the dialogue.
