As we approach the 50th anniversary of the landmark nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT), it is important to stay informed and be engaged about today’s nuclear challenges and effective solutions.

The 2018 Arms Control Association Annual Meeting will bring together members and colleagues in the field, journalists, U.S. and international officials, and prominent experts and policymakers to discuss the future of the NPT and today’s most important weapons-related security threats.

Topics will include:

  • new initiatives to strengthen the NPT and avert a new arms race
  • strategies to overcome the impasse on U.S. and Russian arms control
  • approaches to uphold and build upon the Iran nuclear deal
  • practical solutions to the North Korean nuclear crisis

The conference will open with the presentation of the 2017 Arms Control Persons of the Year Award to representatives of the core group of negotiating states on the Treaty for the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. 

A complete program will be posted here soon.
