Annual Conference on 21 and 22 September 2018
Verification in Crisis - the Crisis of Verification. New Technology as a Hurdle to and an Enabler of Verification in Arms Control
From the perspective of arms control, modern technology is both a curse and a blessing. On one hand, many new technologies can be used to limit proliferation of critical material or components or to help verify existing arms control arrangements. On the other hand, new technologies make it easier to hide critical capabilities or to bypass existing arms control regimes. The conference brings together experts from the fields of weapons of mass destruction, conventional armament and emerging technologies will debate problems and chances of latest high-tech, with a particular, yet not exclusive view on information technology, in their respective field to inspire each other to find common solutions to similar problems.
The conference is sponsored by the German Foundation for Peace Research.
When? Friday, 21 September 2018, 12-20pm and Saturday, 22 September 2018, 9-16.30pm
Where? Peace Research Institute Frankfurt, Baseler Straße
