The conference brought together scholars working on global nuclear governance in India and abroad to discuss the challenges and opportunities of the emerging nuclear governance architecture. It focused on how India can play a more proactive role as a driver of new ideas on the subject. In assessing India’s role in global nuclear governance, the conference covered both nuclear security issues and non-proliferation frameworks, seeking to envision a holistic nuclear governance and non-proliferation architecture.
While preparing for the next Nuclear Security Summit, scheduled for 31 March – 1 April 2016, it was pertinent to review and discuss the roadmap and the Indian involvement for a robust nuclear security regime. The conference thus explored the possibility of developing a more comprehensive alternative to the fragmented nuclear security mechanisms today.
