Sem:VerifyingNuclearDisarmamnt

This course is a directed study, interactive seminar course for the advanced student. Students will be required to complete several short assignments and to write a research paper on an allocated, practical aspect of the verification of nuclear arms control and to participate in a class simulation to design a verification regime for specified scenarios. The lecture component of the course will start by discussing verification approaches in general and how these have been historically applied. We will then have a series of technical lectures focusing on the technology that will allow the verification of nuclear weapons stocks, confirmation of nuclear weapons elimination, and the prohibition of weapon remanufacture and assembly. The course will finish with the presentation of students research papers to the class.
