Conference on the 2012 Seoul Nuclear Security Summit and Next Generation Nuclear SecurityDownload
On November 2, 2011, in Seoul, South Korea, the Fissile Materials Working Group (FMWG), of which the Stanley Center is a member, along with the Institute of Foreign Affairs and National Security (IFANS) and the Korea Institute of Nuclear Nonproliferation and Control (KINAC), hosted a conference to discuss the 2012 Nuclear Security Summit (NSS) and how the nuclear security regime needs to evolve to effectively address the threat of nuclear terrorism. The conference, titled “The 2012 Seoul Nuclear Security Summit and Next Generation Nuclear Security,” included more than 130 international nuclear security experts, government officials, and journalists. Participants represented 21 countries and were predominantly from the Asian-Pacific region. Participants discussed the significance and objectives of the 2012 NSS; regional perspectives on nuclear security; global nuclear security governance; and the future of the nuclear security regime. The conference created a forum for networking and sharing policy ideas on the 2012 NSS and the future of the nuclear security regime. These interactions helped build a global network of experts to press for the implementation of nuclear security measures throughout the NSS process.
