Since President Obama’s 2009 announcement of his long-term nuclear disarmament vision in Prague and the following signing of the 2010 US-Russia START Treaty, Prague has established itself as a venue for discussion and taking stock of issues related to nuclear arms control, nuclear security, disarmament and non-proliferation.
The 5th Prague Agenda Conference will explore nuclear deterrence, framing of nuclear disarmament debates, following up on the NPT and emerging nuclear powers. The 2015 Assembly of the international network of Parliamentarians for Nuclear Non-Proliferation and Disarmament (PNND) will follow with a parliamentary conference on eliminating the risks of nuclear weapons.
