SIPRI Lecture: The future of President Obama’s ‘Prague Vision’: 
Assessing the way forward to a world free of nuclear weapons

SIPRI cordially invites you to a lecture by Dr Joseph F. Pilat.

In December, 158 countries met in Vienna to highlight the humanitarian impact of any nuclear explosion and stressed the importance of a treaty on the prohibition of nuclear weapons. These issues will be further highlighted at the upcoming nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) review conference to be held at the United Nations in New York in April/May in 2015. It is within this context that Dr Pilat will review recent developments and offer comments on the way forward.

Read the full invitation. Please confirm your participation, no later than Tuesday, 3 February 2015 by sending an email with your name and full affiliation to Cynthia Loo ().
