The NPT: Preserving the Legacy

Online Science Diplomacy School Event
Event Date: Friday, May 15, 2020 to Saturday, May 16, 2020
Event Location: II Online Science Diplomacy School (Via Zoom)

One Earth Future's Open Nuclear Network Director Laura Rockwood and Analyst Veronika Bedenko will be presenting as lecturers as part of the II Online Science Diplomacy School "The NPT: Preserving the Legacy," via Zoom on May 15th and 16th. 

On March 5, 2020, the world celebrated the 50th anniversary of the entry into force of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT). The UN Secretary-General’s spokesman stated that “for half a century, the NPT has served as the most important foundation for international peace and security, the regime of nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation.” One of the key tasks of the School as an educational tool is to provide a platform for knowledge and experience sharing addressing the three pillars of the NPT: non-proliferation, disarmament and peaceful uses of nuclear energy. The School also aims to encourage a new generation of specialists to be more involved in non-proliferation issues.

The 2-day online school includes lectures delivered by prominent experts in the nuclear field.

Laura Rockwood will be presenting on non-proliferation & IAEA safeguards and Veronika Bedenko will be sharing her expertise on geospatial tools and satellite imagery for non-proliferation analysis.
