The Prague Agenda - the Way Forward

The Institute of International Relations in cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic cordially invites you to the conference
The Prague Agenda - the Way Forward
The historic city of Prague has recently hosted two major international security events. First, in April 2009 US President Obama arrived in Prague to announce his bold nuclear disarmament vision. Second, in April 2010, Prague was chosen to host the summit of bilateral US-Russian nuclear arms control talks that resulted in the signature of the New Start Treaty. The selection of Prague as the venue provides now a unique opportunity to take stock of the progress achieved so far in the two agendas. With the participation of high ranked world representatives and renowned experts, the goal of the whole event is to explore both political and expert views related to disarmament, arms control, non-proliferation and nuclear security. 

Speakers include:

  • Gary Samore, United States National Security Council, Special Assistant to the President and White House Coordinator for Arms Control and WMD, Proliferation and Terrorism
