On January 18, 2013, Managing Across Boundaries (MAB) and the Permanent Missions of Japan, Turkey, and Poland to the United Nations hosted the Turtle Bay Security Roundtable: Proliferation Challenges in a Flat World”. The day-long roundtable was designed to supply UN Member States, members of the UN Panel of Experts of Security Council subsidiary organs, experts from think tanks, industry, academics, and members of civil society with an opportunity to debate the effectiveness of nonproliferation instruments and the challenges such tools face in a globalized world. At this fourth installment of the seminar, participants deliberated on the mechanics of illicit networks, sanctions evasion, and the trafficking of conventional arms and dual-use materials. Contributors particularly emphasized the impact of proliferation on economic development and human security. The event additionally featured a dialogue on how to sift through the ever-growing complexities of the trade in a globalized world in order to develop stronger international tools to thwart such harmful operations. In total, well over 100 participants representing 60 UN Missions as well as leading nonproliferation experts attended the conference.
