The Sixth Turtle Bay Security Roundtable:
MANAGING THE NEXT GENERATION OF WEAPONS THREATS
Even as the international community continues to grapple with the weapons concerns of the 20th century-including the proliferation of small arms and light weapons as well as of weapons of mass destruction-the coming decades will require equal diligence in predicting and managing threats from a new generation of weapons technology. The beginning of the 21st century has been heralded by remarkable technological innovation — innovation that has also fashioned new types of weaponry that are complicating the already strained global security control environment. The sixth meeting of the Turtle Bay Security Roundtable will examine new, technologically advanced weapons, the dangers they pose and their proliferation potential, while also considering innovative approaches to their control by learning the lessons of previous nonproliferation and arms control efforts.
About the Turtle Bay Security Roundtable Series
The Permanent Missions of Japan, Poland and Turkey have been co-hosting a series of events that focus on various security challenges posed in today’s world. The seminar is organized in close cooperation with the Stimson Center, an internationally renowned think tank based in Washington DC that enjoys strong support from the United Nations. These events have included not only UN diplomats and leading experts in the area of disarmament, arms control, and non-proliferation, but also corporate executives and scholars in order to promote candid, in-depth and thought-provoking discussions. The organizers have also tried to facilitate cross-cutting analysis of wide-ranging issues by welcoming the participation of experts in the area of development and peace-building-key components to promoting international peace and stability.
