Informing Nonproliferation with Intelligence: Three Problems
Presentation by Henry Sokolski
January 23, 2017
12:00 - 1:00 pm
Hinckley Institute of Politics, University of Utah
This presentation features a summary of NPEC's latest findings from a two-year NPEC project, "Speaking Truth to Nonproliferation." This effort engaged over 50 senior retired and serving policymakers and intelligence officials and top academic national security analysts at a series of meetings. These gatherings focused on several historical cases to help evaluate how collaboration between U.S. nuclear nonproliferation intelligence officials and policymakers might be improved.
With President Trump on record against even "some" proliferation, what can be done to encourage early, appropriate interventions to block potential, new proliferation developments before risky military or covert operations might be required? How might nuclear nonproliferation policy planning and guidance be improved to make such timely interventions more likely? How can the nonproliferation agenda get the priority it deserves?
The Nonproliferation Policy Education Center (NPEC), is a 501 (c)3 nonpartisan, nonprofit,
founded in 1994 to promote a better understanding of strategic weapons proliferation issues. NPEC educates
and university professors about proliferation threats and possible new policies and measures to meet them.
