Solutions for a Secure Nuclear Future

Invitation Only

The Nuclear Security Summit (NSS) process, initiated by President Obama in 2010, has successfully drawn high-level attention to nuclear security. However, the upcoming summit in 2016 will be the last of the same scale and prominence. It also holds a special significance: the NSS process is ending, but nuclear security requires sustained vigilance and continuous progress.

“Solutions for a Secure Nuclear Future,” the nongovernmental nuclear security summit hosted by the Fissile Materials Working Group, will focus on how governments and other nuclear security stakeholders can continue to work toward a global nuclear security system that will prevent nuclear terrorism.

We are expecting 200 experts representing nearly 50 countries to participate. The event will precede the opening of the official governmental nuclear security summit taking place March 31–April 1. The summit seeks to highlight the importance of minimizing and potentially eliminating weapons-usable materials, achieving a comprehensive nuclear security regime, and establishing sustainable nuclear security governance.
