This week, CNS experts taught a short course at the Diplomatic Academy of Chile in Santiago. The course is part of a strong and growing relationship between the Foreign Ministry of Chile and the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies that is implemented under a Memorandum of Understanding between the Foreign Ministry and the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey. That cooperative relationship includes, in addition to the course, the training provided to young Chilean diplomats in the Visiting Fellows program in Monterey, internship opportunities for Monterey students at the Chilean foreign ministry, as well as other activities.

The course was taught by Deputy Director of CNS Elena Sokova and CNS Senior Fellow Dr. Nikolai Sokov. The week-long course was focused on the nuclear nonproliferation regime, nuclear security, arms control and nuclear disarmament, as well as provided a broad overview of the current state of international relations and key issues on the international security agenda. The course was attended by second-year students of the Diplomatic Academy, who will, upon graduation, work at the Foreign Ministry.
