Special IAP Seminar hosted by the MIT Security Studies Program (SSP)



First established by U.S. law in 1994, the NTIB originally comprised the industrial bases of the U.S. and Canada. It was later expanded in 2016 to also include Australia and the United Kingdom. This session will focus on the purpose of the NTIB, and related challenges and opportunities of multinational defense industrial base integration.
