Crossing the Finish Line: Ending the Civilian Use of Highly Enriched Uranium
Featured presenters: Miles Pomper, senior research associate at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies, and Jack Edlow, president of Edlow International Company
One of the seminal achievements of the Nuclear Security Summit (NSS) process initiated by President Obama has been to win global support for the longstanding US efforts to phase out civilian highly enriched uranium (HEU). However, as we begin preparing for the 2016 NSS in the United States, the world still lacks a comprehensive multilateral strategy to minimize and ultimately eliminate the use of this material in the civilian sector. In a new policy analysis brief from the Stanley Center, Miles Pomper, senior research associate at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies, puts forward recommendations for the NSS process.
Industry leadership and innovation have played an important role in the success of civilian HEU minimization efforts worldwide. As we mark the ten-year anniversary of the Global Threat Reduction Initiative, Jack Edlow, president of Edlow International Company, will offer an industry perspective and share his views on the challenges and opportunities of phasing out civilian HEU.
