Her research focuses on strategic culture, nuclear security, crisis prevention, onset, escalation, and management, as well as on regional politics in southern Asia. Voluntary information-sharing declarations can be a communication tool for nuclear-armed states with the potential to strengthen global security and stability. We can trace the origin of multilateral, fissile-material-related confidence-building measures CBMs to the early stages of global nuclear-energy development. In South Asia, there is a precedent for this agenda in annual Indian and Pakistani declarations of nuclear facilities.

Squassoni shared the findings of a workshop held by CSIS on transparency measures for nuclear weapons and fissile material. Squassoni noted, however, that transparency is not a substitute for disarmament or an end in itself, but a means to advance nuclear disarmament. Within the NPT context, for example, transparency can help show progress in implementing disarmament obligations. Squassoni discussed the issue of norm building, arguing that if one nuclear weapon State NWS reported information on, for example, fissile material stocks, it could lead to other NWSs eventually following suit. Such norms, she added, should be promoted not only among policy makers but also among the public. Squassoni also argued that civil society estimates help to both put pressure on governments to be more transparent and educate the public.

In January , the Nuclear Policy Program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace initiated a new project to define a more promising future for arms control. We aim to mitigate acute nuclear risks by developing practical, concrete, and innovative ideas for interstate cooperation. In particular, we seek to catalyze the restart of U. This interim progress report lays out five near-term proposals. As a next step, we invite feedback from officials and experts in China, Russia, and the United States and its allies, as well as from all other states—after all, because the consequences of a U. After revising the proposals based on this feedback, we will publish them—along with more ambitious longer-term proposals—in late

The signing of a new disarmament treaty between the U. Obama would like to start the ratification process for the test ban as soon as the imminent disarmament treaty with Moscow has been signed and ratified in each country. However, the immediately pending projects should not distort perception of the strategic necessity of disarmament: Disarmament is a long-term process that lasts for decades. The most important prerequisite for continuously achieving progress in the disarmament process is increasing trust among participants. The disarmament strategy must emphasize systematically building up this trust.

Transparency and the NPT: New Goals and Norms

The focus of this report is increasing transparency of nuclear warhead and fissile material stockpiles. Under the terms of the "Action Plan on Nuclear Disarmament," the NPT nuclear weapon states agreed to cooperate on steps to increase transparency and develop verification capabilities related to nuclear disarmament and in particular to report information that can further openness and verification. The nuclear weapon states are expected to report to the NPT Preparatory Committee in on progress towards meeting these obligations. The report begins with an overview of current nuclear weapon stocks and of national holdings of fissile materials and then lays out a set of options for a series of increasingly detailed public declarations by nuclear weapon states of their nuclear warhead inventories, and of their production and disposition of highly enriched uranium and separated plutonium, the fissile materials that are essential in nuclear weapons. It also suggests new cooperative projects that could assist in the eventual verification of such declarations. The declarations proposed in this report could fulfill some of the nuclear weapon state obligations under the "Action Plan on Nuclear Disarmament" and would provide essential background information required for the negotiation and verification of deep reductions in nuclear arsenals and for the eventual elimination of nuclear weapons.

Ноги Беккера скрылись из виду за поворотом, и Халохот выстрелил, но тут же понял, что выстрел пришелся в пустоту. Пуля срикошетила от стены. Рванувшись вниз за своей жертвой, он продолжал держаться вплотную к внешней стене, что позволило бы ему стрелять под наибольшим углом.

 Я никуда не спешу. Стратмор сокрушенно вздохнул и начал мерить шагами комнату. - Очевидно, когда Танкадо умер, рядом находились свидетели. Согласно словам офицера, который отвел Дэвида в морг, некий канадский турист сегодня утром в панике позвонил в полицию и сказал, что у одного японца в парке случился сердечный приступ.

 Не поддается, сэр? - с трудом произнесла.  - А как же принцип Бергофского. О принципе Бергофского Сьюзан узнала еще в самом начале своей карьеры. Это был краеугольный камень метода грубой силы. Именно этим принципом вдохновлялся Стратмор, приступая к созданию ТРАНСТЕКСТА.

Он обвил ее руками, и они сами собой начали стягивать с нее ночную рубашку. - Я понимаю это как знак согласия, - сказал он, и они не отрывались друг от друга всю ночь, согреваемые теплом камина.
