Emerging Technologies and the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty

Invitation Only

The impact of emerging technologies has assumed greater saliency in recent years, but their implications for nuclear risk and the global nuclear order remain contested and uncertain. Applications of some technologies could have the potential to exacerbate nuclear risks. There may also be ways to leverage these technologies in support of non-proliferation, disarmament, and arms control efforts.

This conference seeks to initiate an international dialogue to better understand the role of emerging technology and nuclear risk. In particular, it seeks to:

  • Develop understanding and awareness of the roles that emerging technologies play in the global nuclear order.
  • Identify risks and opportunities associated with emerging technologies and the implications for crisis stability, arms control, and the NPT.
  • Bridge gaps in thinking between policy and technical communities.
  • Define a forward-looking agenda for emerging technology within the NPT.
