Treatment, Not Terror

Invitation Only

The James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies (CNS) at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey, the Stanley Center, and the Vienna Center for Disarmament and Non-Proliferation will host a workshop entitled “Treatment, Not Terror,”  focused on strategies to enhance external beam cancer therapy in low- and middle-income countries while permanently reducing the risk of radiological terrorism.

In fall 2015, the Stanley Center and CNS, with input from experts of the National Cancer Institute’s Radiation Research Program and the University of Witwatersrand, organized a workshop in Johannesburg, South Africa, to discuss ways for policymakers to improve cancer care in Africa while also reducing the threat of radiological terrorism. Following that workshop, a report was prepared presenting key themes of the discussion and identifying actionable recommendations for the United States, other donor countries, and the IAEA.

The purpose of the “Treatment, Not Terror” workshop is to present the findings and recommendations contained in the report, and to offer an opportunity for an informal and interactive discussion.
