SIPRI and the Alva Myrdal Centre for Nuclear Disarmament at Uppsala University are pleased to host the 2022 Armament and Disarmament Summer School on 28 August–2 September. The 2022 summer school will be held in cooperation with the Odessa Center for Nonproliferation.

The Armament and Disarmament Summer School is both a course and a networking opportunity for the next generation of professionals in the field of disarmament, non-proliferation and arms control, aimed at supporting and reinvigorating disarmament education activities. The programme consists of in-person lectures, seminars and training workshops on armament and disarmament matters. These aim to develop knowledge and skills, and motivate and empower emerging specialists to further expand their expertise in these critical issues and beyond. At the 2022 pilot course, the summer school will also adopt a regional approach and focus on trends, challenges and shifting security dynamics in the Middle East and North Africa. 

The course will feature a variety of opportunities and activities, including lectures and discussions on armament and disarmament by leading experts in the field; skill-building workshops and training sessions; and visits to institutions working with issues in the field of armament and disarmament.
