NTI Vice President Andrew Bieniawski is among the experts
slated to speak at an international meeting on multilateral nuclear disarmament
verification on January 24-26 hosted at the UK venue, Wilton Park. The three-day
meeting will bring together global verification experts to help inform the work
of the United Nations Nuclear Disarmament Verification Group of Governmental
Experts (GGE). Bieniawski will present
on lessons learned from existing verification initiatives, specifically the
work of the International Partnership for Nuclear Disarmament Verification
(IPNDV), a unique public-private partnership between NTI, the U.S. Department
of State, and more than 25 countries with and without nuclear weapons. Several
other IPNDV participants, including co-chairs David Chambers (United Kingdom),
Robert Floyd (Australia), and Michele Smith (United States), also are on the agenda.
This event is hosted by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office,
London and the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Oslo. To learn more about
