Spring 2023 Global Enterprise Meetings
Leading up to the 2023 Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) Preparatory Committee in Vienna, NTI convened a series of meetings of the Global Enterprise to Strengthen Non-Proliferation and Disarmament (GE) to explore opportunities to advance nuclear risk reduction amid a challenging international security environment.
Officials and experts from more than 20 countries participated in these discussions over the course of two virtual meetings in March and May and an in-person session in Geneva in June. The primary focus of this effort was to lay the groundwork for effective dialogue to identify and implement concrete risk reduction measures as part of the NPT review process. To inform the process, NTI commissioned a diverse group of experts in early 2023 to share their perspectives on nuclear risks. Their written responses served as a launching point for the discussions and provided valuable insight into the ways perceptions of nuclear risk vary and the implications of those differences for how to approach risk reduction efforts.
