The DC office of the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies (CNS) hosted a two-day workshop in June with a consortium of scholars who have expertise on the history of the Treaty on the Nonproliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT). Led by Jonathan Hunt, the scholars are currently working on a Carnegie-funded book project on the constitutional history of the NPT. Over the course of the two-day workshop, participants shared presentations on their respective areas of research and engaged in discussions on topics ranging from the role of Czechoslovakia in the Eighteen Nation Disarmament Committee negotiations to Israel’s unique relationship with the treaty regime. The workshop provided an opportunity for the consortium members to discuss next steps in the publication process.

Participants at the workshop included scholars from Sweden, India, South Africa, the UK, Mexico, Israel, the US, and more. The workshop took place in a hybrid format in order to facilitate the involvement of participants outside the area. After covid-related delays to the project, CNS was pleased to host this workshop as one of the first events back in person for the DC office.
