As states parties prepare for the delayed 10th Review Conference for the nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty, tensions between the world’s nuclear-armed states remain high, costly upgrades to nuclear arsenals are being pursued, and key treaties that have helped reduce the nuclear danger are under threat.

Last month alone, a senior U.S. official threatened to spend Russia and China “into oblivion” to win a nuclear arms race and U.S. officials discussed a demonstration nuclear test explosion to try to coerce Russia and China to accept U.S. terms for a new arms control deal.

The Reaching Critical Will program of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom and the Arms Control Association invite you to the first in a series of monthly webinars with key experts and diplomats to explore these issues and discuss possible solutions as the disarmament community prepares for the Review Conference when it is rescheduled.

Presenters will include:

  • Hans Kristensen, director of the Nuclear Information Project at the Federation of American Scientists, on the “Modernization Plans of the United States, Russia, and China;”
  • Zia Mian, co-director of the Princeton Program on Science and Global Security on "The Nuclear Weapons Programs of India and Pakistan;”
  • Alicia Sanders-Zakre, policy and research coordinator at the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons, on the "The Costs of Nuclear Weapons;" and 
  • Comments from María Antonieta Jáquez, deputy director-general of disarmament, non-proliferation, and general assembly of the Mexican Foreign Ministry.

Future webinars in the Critical NPT Issues series will address steps to fulfill Article VI of the NPT; how the TPNW complements the NPT; the NPT and the JCPOA; and the future of New START and multilateral disarmament. Look for more information on dates and times in the coming weeks from Reaching Critical Will and the Arms Control Association.

Description: 

The first in a series of monthly webinars with key experts and diplomats to explore issues and solutions as the disarmament community prepares for the 10th NPT Review Conference.
