More than two decades after the end of the cold war, nuclear weapons continue to pose a grave threat to international security. The 2014 Isodarco Winter School will address the challenge of strengthening nonproliferation rules and practices in a world in which many states face real and perceived security threats. 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.

Applications should arrive not later than November 18th, 2013
