Extending the NPT: A Critical Oral History of the 1995 Review and Extension Conference.

Onderco, M. & Nuti, L., eds. (2020) Extending the NPT. Washington, DC: Woodrow Wilson Center

"Extending the NPT - A Critical Oral History of the 1995 Review and Extension Conference" is a record of a conference conducted at the Erasmus University Rotterdam on 22-23 March, 2018 as a part of the Wilson Center's Nuclear Proliferation International History Project. The conference in Rotterdam was not a traditional academic conference, but followed a critical oral history (COH) methodology with discussion between academic experts on one side and policy veterans on the other. This conference aimed at shedding new light on the indefinite extension of the Treaty on Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) in 1995. Given the upcoming 25th anniversary of the indefinite extension, and the growing role that the legacy of the extension plays for the NPT politics today, revisiting what happened and how in 1995 was an attractive prospect.

The funding for this project was generously secured by NPIHP from the Carnegie Corporation of New York. Additional funding was kindly provided by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Erasmus University Rotterdam, and Erasmus Trustfonds.
