"I learned so much about arms control and disarmament at ACA! I learned more about arms control here in four months than I had in all three years at my college."

Arms Control NOW


The UN Security Council Resolution (eventually adaopted as UNSC Resolution 2310) on the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty was introduced by the United States and adopted despite opposition from some U.S. senators and representatives. On Sept. 7, the Senate Foregin Relations Committee held a hearing on President Obama's proposal for a UN Security Council resolution reinforcing the CTBT, trying to ascertain the legality or appropriateness of the proposal. The witnesses were Stephen Rademaker, principal, of The Podesta Group and Michael Krepon, co-founder and senior advisor of the Stimson Center.
