NPT Symposium: Fresh Ideas for the Future

NPT Symposium: United Nations Headquarters in New York

United Nations Headquarters in New York.

The ninth Review Conference of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) will be held at the UN Headquarters in New York from April 27-May 22, 2015. Academic experts contribute to the review process through the generation of new ideas and concepts. Also, while governments are oftentimes bound by political and other practical constraints, scholars can contemplate issues more independently and with a longer time horizon. For that reason, the Netherlands government has taken the initiative to organize, together with the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs (UNODA), the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs of Harvard University, and the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies at the Monterey Institute, an academic symposium to gather a view of worldwide research related to the NPT and to learn from scholars about present and future challenges and opportunities.

For those interested in possibly participating as a presenter, please send an email by January 31, 2015, to [email protected]. Those who register their interest in presenting on any of the three pillars of the NPT will receive detailed instructions on how to submit a paper/poster proposal.
