"Yvonne Yew Offers Insight into Crucial Asian Security Issues"

Newsletter Article, Belfer Center Newsletter

By Ramiro Gonzalez Lorca and Yvonne Yew, Former Associate, Project on Mangaing the Atom, June 1, 2014–June 30, 2015; Former Research Fellow, Project on Managing the Atom/International Security Program, July 1, 2011–May 31, 2014; Former Research Fellow, Future of Diplomacy Project, 2010–2011

"Researching Asian security issues has never been more topical," Yvonne Yew said in discussing her work at the Belfer Center. Despite Asia's economic growth, she said, "simmering tensions, territorial disputes, nuclear proliferation concerns, and military skirmishes serve to potentially undermine the region's peace and prosperity. As a former Singaporean diplomat and representative to the International Atomic Energy Agency, Yew is in a unique position to view security issues spurred by the momentous and ongoing rise of Asia."

Diplomacy and Nuclear Non-Proliferation: Navigating the Non-Aligned Movement

Paper

By Yvonne Yew, Former Associate, Project on Mangaing the Atom, June 1, 2014–June 30, 2015; Former Research Fellow, Project on Managing the Atom/International Security Program, July 1, 2011–May 31, 2014; Former Research Fellow, Future of Diplomacy Project, 2010–2011

The Obama administration has sought a global cooperative approach to stem the spread of nuclear weapons and push for a stronger global engagement on the non-proliferation front. In the context of these efforts, this paper looks at the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), established 50 years ago and representing 120 "global South" countries on issues related to nuclear rights and proliferation.
