About the Conference

The 2017 Moscow Nonproliferation Conference was held on October 19-21, 2017. The event brought together 259 experts and officials from more than 40 countries and international organisations to discuss the most pressing issues in areas of nonproliferation, disarmament and peaceful uses of atomic energy.

The 2018 marks 50 years since the opening for signature of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), the milestone of the international nonproliferation regime and one of the most universal international security documents. The current state of the treaty and prospects for the 2020 NPT Review Cycle were therefore among the main topics on the Conference agenda.

Other key topics included the sustainability of the JCPOA and the role of multilateral diplomacy in defusing the nuclear crisis on the Korean peninsula.

The Conference was organized by the Center for Energy and Security Studies (CENESS) and chaired by Mr. Anton Khlopkov, CENESS Director and member of the Advisory Board under the Security Council of the Russian Federation.
