Working Group on an Expanded Nonproliferation System

EXPLORing HOW TO GIVE INDIA A MORE ACTIVE ROLE IN THE NON-PROLIFERATION SYSTEM

Challenge

Since becoming a nuclear weapons power, India has largely remained outside of the global nonproliferation system.

Action

NTI formed a working group to identify goals for the nonproliferation system that the United States and India could agree on, and to develop a road map for a revived nonproliferation system that could integrate India.

Results

NTI and CSIS published a report outlining specific steps to give India a more active role in the non-proliferation system 

The Working Group on an Expanded Nonproliferation System was formed in the summer of 2009 to identify goals for the nonproliferation system on which India and the United States might be able to agree, and to develop a workable road map for a revived nonproliferation system that could integrate India.
