Eliminating nuclear weapons and safeguarding nuclear technologies
Director of the School: Carlo Schaerf (Isodarco, Rome, Italy)
Directors of the Course: Matthew Evangelista (Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, USA), Giorgio Franceschini (Peace Research Institute Frankfurt (PRIF), Germany)
SODARCO has organized residential courses on global security since 1966 primarily in Italy but also in China, Germany and Jordan with the generous support of private foundations and international and national institutions and organizations. The courses are intended for those who would like to play a more active and technically competent role in the field of international conflict resolution as well as those who already have a professional interest and experience in this field. The courses are intensive, interactive, and interdisciplinary in focus. The subject matter spans the technical and scientific dimensions of these problems as well as their sociological and political implications.
After a decade and more during which the issues posed by nuclear weapons were largely eclipsed by concerns over ethnic wars and the threat of terrorism, there is renewed serious interest in the goal of nuclear disarmament.
The 2011 ISODARCO Winter School will be devoted to the practical steps that should be implemented to achieve a nuclear-weapon free world and to the challenges and open questions on the road to nuclear zero.
