The Non-Aligned Movement Disarmament Database at CNS: Current Research and Future Initiatives

Seminar with Tracy Lyon, GRA at CNS

Video Seminar: Took place on April 18, 2017, at CNS of MIIS in Monterey.

The Non-Aligned Movement Disarmament Database archives the political positions and statements made by the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) in multilateral fora related to international disarmament issues since the Movement’s inception in 1961. All information is taken directly from primary sources, such as documents from NAM meetings, official communications, working papers, and United Nations records. The Database allows users to search for statements based on the fora and year in which they were presented and categorizes statements based on topics most frequently examined or deliberated by NAM in these fora.

The NAM Database is developed and managed by the International Organizations and Nonproliferation Program (IONP) within the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies (CNS) at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey (MIIS). The Database concept, scope, and content were the initiative of Ambassador Aruni Wijewardane, who served as the Director of IONP and as Diplomat-in-Residence at CNS from 2011 to 2013, with full encouragement and support from Dr. William Potter, Director of CNS.
