After the Iran Deal: The Future of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Regime

By Center for the Study of Weapons of Mass Destruction

On February 4th, 2016 the Center for the Study of Weapons of Mass Destruction (CSWMD) hosted a Spotlight Seminar featuring Assistant Secretary of State Thomas M. Countryman. The seminar, "After the Iran Deal: The Future of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Regime," covered the nuclear agreement with Iran as principally a nonproliferation accord that, if fully implemented, will effectively close Iran's main pathways to a nuclear weapon for at least the next decade.  The seminar also explored how the nuclear agreement will also have far-reaching strategic consequences affecting the probability of future proliferation and regional security risks in an increasingly unstable Middle East.  The seminar featured a presentation by Mr. Countryman and an engaging discussion with the approximately 60 experts, faculty, and students in attendance.
