On 10 February 2021, the IAI and the Vienna Center for Disarmament and Non-Proliferation (VCDNP) held the first Outreach Event of the “Young Women In Non-Proliferation and Disarmament” initiative, an initiative launched by both organizations to encourage young women and the new generation to approach the issues of non-proliferation, arms control and the field of disarmament.
