Brazil, Argentina, and the Road to the NPT

June 15, 2011 // 4:30pm6:00pm

Starting in the 1980s, however, a range of mechanisms led to an emerging system of mutual inspections that transformed geopolitics in South America, defused threat perceptions, helped the civilian leadership extricate the military from the nuclear programs, and paved the way for entry into the NPT.
