Alice Saltini is a Research Coordinator for the European Leadership Network, where she contributes to research projects on arms control, strategic risk reduction and emerging technologies, and a CTBTO-CENESS research fellow.
Previously, she interned for the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization in the External Relations, Protocol and International Cooperation Section and worked as a Research Assistant at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies.
Founder and leader of Young Pugwash Italy, as well as a regional coordinator of the CTBTO Youth Group, she holds a Master’s degree in Russian studies, and a Post-Graduate certificate in Nonproliferation Studies from the Middlebury Institute of International Studies.
Her research interests relate to arms control and non-proliferation, disarmament diplomacy, West-Russia relations, and international politics, particularly in the context of multilateralism and international law. She is particularly interested in new and creative approaches aimed at achieving ratifications from hold-out Annex-2 States and the early entry into force of the CTBT as a precursor to further nuclear/WMD free zones.
