International Conference:

NSRI 2019 - Rethinking the Nuclear Future: Perspectives from Europe and America


NSRI, in collaboration with the Institute for Peace Research and Security Policy at the University of Hamburg (IFSH), is proud to announce the 2019 NSRI Conference, Rethinking the Nuclear Future: Perspectives from Europe and America, which will take place in Hamburg, Germany from December 12-15, 2019. Scholarship on nuclear issues has flourished in the past decade, which presents an opportunity to assess the contributions of past and current research. This year’s conference is committed to reexamining the fundamental questions of our field, from technological advancements to questions of strategy and proliferation policy. We are excited to have received many submissions that discuss a broader “big think” approach, such as synthesizing across literatures and debates or taking on reevaluations of core questions.


About the NSRI:

The Nuclear Studies Research Initiative (NSRI) was established to support and expand a renaissance in nuclear studies by creating a platform for intellectual exchange, cross-fertilization, and mentorship. The initiative actively promotes work that transcends both national and disciplinary boundaries and seeks to contribute to addressing core policy challenges. Created in 2013 by the Robert S. Strauss Center for International Security and Law and the Nuclear Proliferation International History Project, the NSRI is now hosted by the Henry A. Kissinger Center for Global Affairs at Johns Hopkins SAIS and has been supported by both the Carnegie Corporation and the MacArthur Foundation.
