Nonproliferation in a Noncompliant World: Rethinking UN Security Council Resolution 1540

On October 29, 2015 the Stimson Center and the Washington Foreign Law Society, cosponsored “Nonproliferation in a Noncompliant World: Rethinking UN Security Council Resolution 1540,” a workshop in cooperation with South Africa-based Institute for Security Studies (ISS) as part of the launch of the ISS-coordinated Towards the 2016 Comprehensive Review: Former Experts Assess UNSC Resolution 1540, a report that recommends better practices to combat proliferation.

The event brought UNSC Resolution 1540 specialists together with approximately 40 members of civil society, from think-tank professionals to lawyers to university students, to assess the challenges associated with Resolution 1540 as part of outreach in support of the 2016 Comprehensive Review.
