POSSE Workshop in Vienna

Primary tabs

Between November 11 through November 13, 2012 the Project on Strategic Stability Evaluation (POSSE) will hold its, by invitation only, annual meeting at the Vienna Center for Disarmament and Non-Proliferation (VCDNP) in Austria.  Each POSSE member has written a white paper that will be discussed by distinguished senior reviewers including Patrick James, Alexey Fenenko, Jeffrey Lewis, and Heinz Gärtner.

The POSSE members will be addressed during the workshop by leading diplomats and scholars including Hans Blix (Sweden), Rüdiger Lüdeking (Germany), Ole Reistad (Norway), Alexander Kmentt (Austria), Alfredo Labbé (Chile), and Khaled Shamaa (Egypt).

POSSE will visit the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) for a panel discussion and the CTBTO for a series of lectures and demonstrations.

POSSE is funded by the Carnegie Corporation of New York. The program brings together promising advanced graduate students and young professors from the United States, Russia, China, India, Pakistan, Israel,and France to analyze alternative frameworks and methodologies for re-thinking the requirements for strategic stability amid deep reduction in standing nuclear arsenals.  It also seeks to engage academics in the policy debate over the wisdom and modalities of pursuing visions and steps towards deep reductions, including nuclear disarmament.  For more on the program, please visit our website: http://www.posse.gatech.edu/.
