Today’s nuclear policy challenges have deep roots in the past. Hence, international history of nuclear weapons proliferation does have the potential to play a role in aiding policy-making. Towards this goal, following the invitation of the Center for Security Studies (CSS) at ETH Zurich, NPIHP partners, experts and policy people from all around the world traveled to Vienna, Austria, on February 1, 2013, for a one-day workshop. The participants had the opportunity to discuss the results of the historical research conducted so far within the project and work towards better understanding the wider implications of historical work for the policy context. The meeting greatly benefited from the gracious hosting by NPIHP's partners at the Vienna Center for Disarmament and Non-Proliferation (VCDNP).
