Seminar on fissile materials stocks at UNIDIR

On January 19, 2010, Annette Schaper and H. A. Feiveson of IPFM made presentations at the Palais des Nations in Geneva. The lunch-time seminar was organized by the United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research (UNIDIR). There were approximately 120 attendees at the seminar, most delegates to the Conference on Disarmament. Both presentations focused on the importance and feasibility of including in a Fissile Material Cutoff Treaty certain pre-existing stocks of fissile materials - notably civilian stocks, fissile materials declared excess by nuclear weapon states to any military uses, and highly enriched uranium reserved for naval reactors.
