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

Invitation Only

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 Fissile Materials Working Group (FMWG) invited respected international experts to form policy development groups with the objective of developing bold and innovative recommendations that could be implemented through the NSS process and beyond.

The policy development groups include: Elimination of Highly Enriched Uranium in Civilian Applications, chaired by Ms. Elena Sokova of the Vienna Center for Disarmament and Nonproliferation; Enhancing the Security of Military Materials, chaired by Dr. James Doyle; and Information-Sharing, Standards and Best Practices, and Security Culture, chaired by Dr. Anita Nilsson of AN & Associates.

At this event, organized in collaboration with the Vienna Center for Disarmament and Nonproliferation, policy development group chairs and members will present their recommendations to the diplomatic community in Vienna.

The Fissile Materials Working Group (FMWG) is a nongovernmental coalition of more than 80 US and international organizations and individuals working to provide action-oriented policy solutions to keep the world safe from nuclear terrorism.
