Verification & Implementation book launch

Wednesday, 16 December 2015, 5:00 - 6:30 PM.

With Mark Hibbs, Senior Associate, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace

It is our pleasure to invite you to the launch of Verification & Implementation: a biennial series that brings together leading issue experts to provide authoritative thinking on the verification and implementation mechanisms that underpin collective approaches to shared security challenges. It resumes VERTIC’s contribution to the high-level debate surrounding verification and implementation, begun by its Verification Yearbook series.

To celebrate the launch, VERTIC will be hosting Mark Hibbs, Senior Associate of the Nuclear Policy Programme at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. He will present a summary of his chapter – ‘Iran and the Evolution of Safeguards’ – which analyses how the evolving nuclear safeguards system has coped with Iran’s nuclear activities and argues that its ability to monitor Iran’s on-going activities will be a critical test case for the nuclear non-proliferation regime.

Location: Conference Room 1, Development House, 56-64 Leonard Street, London, EC2A 4LT.

Please RSVP to Hugh Chalmers here. Places are limited.
