India and the Non-Proliferation System
The product of a joint NTI-CSIS working group, led by Ambassador Teresita Schaffer and NTI President Joan Rohlfing, India and the Non-Proliferation System outlines specific steps to give India a more active role in the non-proliferation system (if not the NPT). In 2010, the group released a formal recommendation: the U.S. and Indian governments should work to bring India into full membership in key export control groups. Five months later, both governments endorsed the proposal.
In addition to the report, the working group developed a set of working papers to guide discussions.
