The World of today is very different from the dawn of the nuclear age. New technologies are available that can help enhance and expand arms control and nonproliferation efforts. Open source technology could be useful and smart phone and tablet apps could be created for the express purpose of aiding in the verification and monitoring process. A new era demands a new way of thinking. What are the implications of these technologies and what challenges lie ahead?

The Swedish Institute of International Affairs (UI) is proud to host a lecture on this issue by the US Acting Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security, Rose Gottemoeller. Acting Under Secretary Rose Gottemoeller is advisor on arms control, nonproliferation and disarmament. She was the chief U.S. negotiator of the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (New START) with the Russian Federation, which entered into force on February 5, 2011.

Acting Under Secretary Rose Gottemoeller will be discussing together with Research Coordinator at SIPRI and the Director of the SIPRI Programme on Arms Control, Disarmament and Non-proliferation, Dr Ian Anthony.
