Let us cordially invite you, on behalf of the team of organizers, to the 5th annual Prague Agenda conference.
Since President Obama’s 2009 announcement of his long-term nuclear disarmament vision in Prague and the following signing of the 2010 US-Russia START Treaty, Prague has established itself as a venue for discussion and taking stock of issues related to nuclear arms control, nuclear security, disarmament and non-proliferation.
The Prague Agenda 2015 will focus primarily on the following themes:
- Nuclear Deterrence: Enduring Concepts and Current Debates
- NPT Review Conference 2015: Lessons and Future Prospects
- Emerging Nuclear Powers
Apart from the traditional academic and political parts of the conference, this year's event will include parliamentary conference, open to all, on Eliminating the Risks of Nuclear Weapons – a part of the Annual Assembly of the international network of Parliamentarians for Nuclear Non-Proliferation and Disarmament (PNND).
