This research paper attempts to place nuclear disarmament and arms control in the context of the sustainable development agenda. In particular, the paper examines the possibility of applying the experience and specific mechanisms of the 1997 Kyoto Protocol to create new incentives for nuclear arms control and disarmament. Considering the devastating environmental consequences of nuclear weapons use, the nuclear-weapon states should take responsibility for possessing nuclear weapons just as they took responsibility for carbon emissions.

PIR Center's Particpation in the 2010 NPT Review Conference

On May 3-28, 2010 the Eighth NPT Review Conference is taking place in New York. Having entered into force forty years ago, the NPT has become a cornerstone of the international nuclear nonproliferation regime. The NPT serves as a basis for the promotion of the nuclear disarmament process and is a framework for the peaceful uses of nuclear energy.

International security largely depends on the success of the NPT Review Conference.

PIR Center president Vladimir Orlov is an adviser to the Russian delegation and takes an active part in the work of the Conference. “Ways of Nuclear Disarmament” Project Coordinator Elena Geleskul represents PIR Center.
