Dealing with Hard Cases and Strengthening the Regime
In May 2004, the International Institute for Strategic Studies, the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, the United States Institute of Peace, and the U.S. Army's Eisenhower National Security Series jointly convened an international workshop to examine nuclear proliferation threats and challenges in the wake of 2003's two major nonproliferation developments: the Iraq war and Libya's surprise decision in 2003 to renounce its unconventional weapons programs.
The meeting, held at the IISS in London involved some 30 senior officials and experts from the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Russia, Switzerland and Israel.
