The Results We Need in 2016: FMWG Policy Recommendations for the Nuclear Security Summit

The period leading up to the last Nuclear Security Summit (NSS) in 2016 is critical for improving the state of global nuclear security. To capitalize on the importance of this moment, the FMWG invited respected international experts to form working groups with the objective of developing bold and innovative recommendations on three topics that need further study:

  • A Path to the Elimination of Highly Enriched Uranium (Chair: Ms. Elena Sokova of the Vienna Center for Disarmament and Nonproliferation)
  • Addressing the Security of Military Materials (Chair: Dr. James Doyle)
  • Information-Sharing, Standards and Best Practices, and Security Culture (Chair: Dr. Anita Nilsson of AN & Associates)

Please join us on March 26 for a special lunch event, where the Chair of each policy development working group will discuss their preliminary recommendations and welcome feedback from all participants.

The Fissile Materials Working Group (FMWG) is a nongovernmental coalition of more than 70 US and international organizations working to provide action-oriented policy solutions to keep the world safe from nuclear terrorism.
