Arms Control and Regional Security Oral History Project

The 2022 launch panel for the Arms Control and Regional Security (ACRS) Oral History Archive

Date & Time

Dec. 6, 2022
9:00am – 10:30am ET




The official launch of the Arms Control and Regional Security (ACRS) Oral History Project is the culmination of a multi-year partnership between The James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies (CNS) and the Nuclear Proliferation International History Project at the Woodrow Wilson Center.

The project team has conducted and compiled dozens of interviews with diplomats and officials who participated in the ACRS multilateral meetings in the early 1990s. The archival documents, alongside findings from the interviews and from a virtual workshop with ACRS participants, were distilled into a research study on ACRS.

The new archive will host these oral history interviews, and previously-unpublished documents from US Presidential archives.

The event, moderated by Dr. Christian Ostermann, will feature a presentation of findings on ACRS by the project leads, Dr. Hanna Notte and Dr. Chen Zak Kane.
