Nuclear Non-Proliferation, why it is so important and what I have learnt at the NEREC Summer School2019.11.28 9:56 - Anna Rędaszek
The Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) is an international agreement in force since 1970, under which nuclear-weapon member states have undertaken not to sell this technology to countries that do not have it, and thus non-nuclear-weapon states have undertaken not to develop this technology for purposes other than research.
The treaty is divided into three pillars: non-proliferation, disarmament, and the right to peacefully use nuclear technology, which are interlinked by the 11 articles that make up the treaty.
Poland has been a member state of NPT since 5 March 1970. As a state without a nuclear reactor, it is important to understand Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty in terms of the development of science related to nuclear energy and the future operation of a nuclear reactor.
One of the opportunities for education in the field of nuclear non-proliferation is participation in NEREC Summer School.
Nuclear Nonproliferation Education and Research Center (NEREC) is the University-based center dedicated to nuclear nonproliferation education and research in Korea in which the main objective is to conduct nonproliferation policy research combining technical expertise and policy insights.
