Fifty years ago, President Dwight D. Eisenhower made a speech to the United Nations General Assembly announcing his seminal Atoms-for-Peace proposal. It is an appropriate time to reassess the legacy of this proposal and the international nuclear nonproliferation regime elements it underlies, and to look ahead to assess the relevance of Atoms for Peace for dealing with nuclear energy, nonproliferarion, arms control, and terrorism issues over the next 50 years.
To assess the past and future of Atoms for Peace, G. Peter Nanos of the Los Alamos National Laboratory, Lee Hamilton of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and Timothy Sullivan of the College of William & Mary willl host a two-day meeting on December 8–9, 2003. This meeting, to be webcast, will provide a balanced assessment of the future bounded in an analysis and appreciation of the past.
