Dr. Hans Blix, former head of the International Atomic Energy Agency and the UN Monitoring, Verification, and Inspection Commission, addressed the Arms Control Association January 25. Blix is currently chairing the WMD Commission, which was launched by the Swedish government in December 2003 to explore ways to reduce threats posed by biological, chemical, nuclear, and radiological weapons. The commission will release publicly its findings this coming spring. In a June 2004 interview with Arms Control Today, Blix argued that the international community needs to resume "dynamic work on the disarmament agenda." At the Association's luncheon, Blix shared his thoughts on how to advance this work and strengthen the global nonproliferation system.
