From the Indian Bomb to the Establishment of the First Brazil-Argentina Nuclear Agreement (1974-1980)
India’s first nuclear explosive test in May 1974 had deep consequences for the nuclear non-proliferation regime. The establishment of the Nuclear Suppliers Group in 1975 added to the safeguards requirements that were imposed on countries seeking nuclear technology—even those that were outside the NPT. This tightening of the nuclear technology transfer regime as a result of India’s 1974 test would have a considerable effect on the Brazilian and Argentine programs.
On October 24, 2011, Kyunghyang Shinmun, a South Korean newspaper, featured a report on the publication of The Rise and Fall of Détente on the Korean Peninsula, 1970-1974, the newest addition to the History and Public Policy Critical Oral History Conference Series.
At its workshop on "New Evidence on the Korean War from Russian, Chinese and European Archives" on 21 June 2000, the Cold War International History Project (CWIHP) launched a new initiative on "New Evidence on North Korea in the Cold War." The initiative will be the focus of major research efforts by the CWIHP over the next three years.
