More than two decades after the end of the cold war, nuclear weapons
continue to pose a grave threat to international security. The
stockpiles of the major nuclear powers still number in the hundreds or
thousands, while the near-universal adoption of the Nuclear
Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT) has not been enough to prevent nuclear
aspirants from acquiring the means to produce their own weapons. The
2014 Isodarco Winter School will address the challenge of strengthening
nonproliferation rules and practices in a world where many states face
real and perceived security threats. We will pay particular attention to
the tensions between states that frame nuclear security primarily in
terms of preventing terrorists and certain states from acquiring nuclear
weapons and those that prefer alternative approaches, such as creating
nuclear weapons free zones. Topics will include: a) technical aspects of
protecting the nuclear fuel cycle; b) assessing new efforts to secure,
cut off, and reduce fissile material stockpiles; c) issues posed by
recent nuclear proliferation; d) the roles of international law and
domestic measures in supporting a strengthened nonproliferation regime.
Special attention will be devoted to practical steps to increase the
capacity of the Vienna-based International Atomic Energy Agency to deal
with its increasing responsibilities.
