About the event:

This talk will comprise of two parts. The first part will focus on the history of nuclear weapons in Kazakhstan, including testing of nuclear weapons designs by the Soviet Union at the former Semipalatinsk Test Site, the nuclear weapons based in Kazakhstan, and the changes undertaken by Kazakhstan when it achieved independence from the Soviet Union, specifically steps towards nuclear disarmament and other initiatives on non-proliferation. The second part will cover the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons that was adopted by a majority of countries at the United Nations earlier this year, focusing on its historical importance and its impact, or lack thereof, on current nuclear policies.
