Non-Proliferation Lessons Learned

Seminar with Dr. Christopher A. Ford

Wednesday, 19 September 2018 from 13:15 to 14:45

The Vienna Center for Disarmament and Non-Proliferation (VCDNP) cordially invites you to attend a seminar by Dr. Christopher A. Ford, Assistant Secretary of State for International Security and Nonproliferation at the U.S. Department of State, entitled “Non-Proliferation Lessons Learned,” followed by a discussion and Q&A. The seminar will be held on Wednesday, 19 September 2018, from 13:15to 14:45 in the VCDNP Conference Room. Refreshments will be served at 13:00.

VENUE CHANGE: This event will now be held in the Conference Room of the Permanent Mission of Japan to the International Organizations in Vienna. Please make sure to bring a photo ID with you to present at registration.

Dr. Ford will discuss how the nuclear non-proliferation regime has learned from and adapted in response to past experiences, and how it must continue to learn and adapt in order to preserve the security and other benefits that stem from the regime. The 50th anniversary of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) provides an opportunity to reflect on how the NPT, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), and other international institutions can continue to thrive in a complex and changing world.

The VCDNP would like to extend its gratitude to the Permanent Mission of Japan to the International Organizations in Vienna for providing the venue for this event and to the U.S. Mission to International Organizations in Vienna for its support and help in organizing this event.
