EU Non-Proliferation and Disarmament Conference
The EU Non-Proliferation and Disarmament Conference, Europe’s largest gathering of non-proliferation, disarmament and deterrence specialists, took place in Brussels on 3–4 November.
WATCH THE PROCEEDINGS
In his opening address, Kim Won-soo suggested that despite global divisions over deterrence versus disarmament, all parties shared the goal of achieving a nuclear-weapons-free world.
WATCH THE SESSION
Members of the panel offered differing interpretations of the relationship between disarmament and deterrence, and provoked a lively floor debate, reflecting the complex and divisive nature of the subject.
WATCH THE DISCUSSION
Lassina Zerbo, Executive Secretary of the Preparatory Commission for the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization, delivered a passionate entreaty to the international community to consider universal ratification of the CTBT as a vital stepping stone to progress on other fronts.
WATCH THE KEYNOTE
In the second plenary session, panellists examined a wide range of technological advances that threatened to erode existing approaches to non-proliferation, and undermined the primacy of frameworks established by state actors.
Panellists in the third plenary session urged the international community not to waver in its commitment to implementing the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, amid frustrations in Iran and the uncertainty of the looming US election.
The EU Non-Proliferation Consortium is managed jointly by four institutes entrusted with the project, in close cooperation with the representative of the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy. The main aim of the network is to combat the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.
