“In June, the US National Security Council was due to consider a draft decision on the revision of some elements of the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR). In particular, Washington wants to remove heavy attack and reconnaissance drones from the MTCR control list, which will allow American companies to supply them to “unstable” countries as well. The military-industrial complex is lobbying removal of some restrictions from the USA the most actively, and although no final decision on this issue has been reported, the consequences of such a step can be significant: the entire regime of international export control may be jeopardized” - this is the leitmotiv of the 524th issue of Yaderny Kontrol.

U.S.-Russia Dialogue on the NPT Review Process: Ideas from Next Generation

Third Meeting of the Track 2.5 Working Group 

Zoom video conference

 

On May 15, 2020, PIR Center and the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey will conduct a virtual seminar on the topic "U.S.-Russia Dialogue on the NPT Review Process: Ideas from Next Generation".

Senior nonproliferation experts, including former officials from the United States and Russia, tend to compare the current crisis in this field to the Cold War era, often in favor of the latter. As we approach the upcoming NPT Review Conference, it is especially valuable to examine the history of U.S.-Russian engagement on NPT issues over the last 50 years through a scholarly lens. We ask the younger generation to share the lessons they learned from studying this experience.

Working languages of the seminar is English.
