On Friday, Nov. 7 at 10:00 a.m., the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies (CNS) will host a presentation given by START researcher Egle Murauskaite (pictured right) and CNS researcher Leonard S. Spector. The talk, entitled "Countering Nuclear Commodity Smuggling: A System of Systems," will take place at 1400 K Street NW, Suite 1225, in Washington D.C. 

The talk will be based on a comprehensive Center for Nonproliferation Studies report which calls on the United States and other concerned countries to adopt tighter controls to stem the flow of nuclear-related goods to Iran, North Korea, and other states of proliferation concern. The study found that even modest improvements across the spectrum of today’s nuclear technology controls could greatly strengthen overall international efforts to constrain illicit nuclear procurement networks.
