What’s next on non­pro­lif­er­a­tion and in­ter­na­tion­al se­cur­ity, in Wash­ing­ton and around the globe.

— Ju­ly 20: A six-month deal between six world powers and Ir­an, aimed at trad­ing sanc­tions re­lief for pro­gress in curb­ing Tehran’s atom­ic arms-rel­ev­ant activ­it­ies, ex­pires. Pro­spects for ex­tend­ing the in­ter­im pact ap­pear likely in an ef­fort to strike a per­man­ent agree­ment.

— Ju­ly 21: The At­lantic Coun­cil hosts Luk­man Faily, Ir­aq’s am­bas­sad­or to the United States, for a dis­cus­sion in Wash­ing­ton titled, “The En­emy of My En­emy: An Un­easy Co­ali­tion and the Threat of IS­IS.”

— Ju­ly 21: Al­tern­at­ively, vis­it the In­sti­tute for Gulf Af­fairs for a sim­il­arly themed con­fer­ence, also in Wash­ing­ton, fea­tur­ing an as­sort­ment of is­sue ex­perts on the “ca­liphate” de­clared by the Is­lam­ic State of Ir­aq and Syr­ia, and re­gion­al rami­fic­a­tions of the group’s rise.

— Ju­ly 21: For­eign-policy spe­cial­ists will be on hand at a Woo­drow Wilson Cen­ter-or­gan­ized event in Wash­ing­ton on the latest re­gard­ing in­ter­na­tion­al ne­go­ti­ations over Ir­an’s nuc­le­ar pro­gram. The event comes one day after the ex­pir­a­tion date of an in­ter­im deal, which al­lowed for sanc­tions to be eased.

— Ju­ly 23: The House Armed Ser­vices Com­mit­tee holds a hear­ing head­lined, “U.S. Na­tion­al Mis­sile De­fense and the Grow­ing Threat: Is a ‘Lim­ited De­fense’ Enough?” Vari­ous in­de­pend­ent is­sue ex­perts are slated to testi­fy. The term “lim­ited” in the hear­ing title al­ludes to the years-old mod­us op­erandi of the De­fense De­part­ment’s mult­i­bil­lion-dol­lar mis­sile de­fense en­ter­prise, which of­fi­cially aims to provide pro­tec­tion against at­tacks with cer­tain caveats.

— Ju­ly 24: The Sen­ate Com­mit­tee on En­ergy and Nat­ur­al Re­sources ques­tions Eliza­beth Sher­wood-Ran­dall, nom­in­ee for the job of deputy en­ergy sec­ret­ary.

— Ju­ly 24: Na­tion­al De­fense Uni­versity schol­ars John Caves and Seth Carus are fea­tured at an off-the-re­cord talk in Wash­ing­ton at the school’s Fort McNair cam­pus. “The Fu­ture of WMD in 2030” is the event’s title. Both speak­ers are on the roster of the NDU Cen­ter for the Study of Weapons of Mass De­struc­tion.

— Ju­ly 24: The Na­tion­al Academies of Sci­ences of­fi­cially un­veil a re­port on les­sons learned from the Fukushi­ma dis­aster and ideas for im­prov­ing the safety of U.S. nuc­le­ar power plants.
