November 8, 2014

By Aaron Stein

The Arms Control Wonk podcast, hosted by Aaron Stein & Jeffrey Lewis features interesting conversations about arms control, disarmament, and non-proliferation issues. Subscribe to the show in iTunes.

How can open source information help verify arms control, disarmament and nonproliferation agreements? Jeffrey and Aaron talk with the NTI’s Corey Hinderstein. In the 1990s, Corey was one of the first nonproliferation experts to use commercial satellite images and other open source tools to peek into foreign nuclear programs. Here is Corey way back in 1999.

Today Corey is Vice President, International Programs at the Nuclear Threat Initiative and author, along with Kelsey Hartigan and Andrew Newsman, of Innovating Verification: New Tools & New Actors to Reduce Nuclear Risks.
