Aaron SteinNPT Review Conference Follies II

The 2015 Review Conference of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty, known among wonks as the REVCON, collapsed in acrimony. If that sounds familiar, that’s because it is – last week we talked with Andrea Berger about the debate in New York over disarmament and a long-planned conference on Weapons of Mass Destruction-free Zone in the Middle East. Joining Aaron and Jeffrey for Part 2 of NPT REVCON Follies is Jeffrey’s colleague at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies, Gaukhar Mukhatzhanova.

Gaukhar is the Director of International Organizations & Nonproliferation Program. She attended the REVCON for all four weeks and wrote two posts for the Arms Control Wonk blog (one and two) from the REVCON.

    So where do the “non-permanant” nuclear weapons states fit into this. I assume North Korea just doesn’t show up, but what about India and Pakistan? Does Israel come to the conference or do they stay home to avoid getting an earful from the Arab coalition?

    Also, the Tinderbox ad in the middle was really annoying. Giving them a link in the description is one thing, but 5 minutes in the middle is another.

    I took French classes long ago, and just noticed, belatedly, that the bomb in the upper right of the pod cast logo is in the form of an accent grave. Most appropriate.
