The Trump administration has an important opportunity to capitalize on the current energy and intellectual capital surrounding nuclear security issues. International attention on nuclear security is at an all-time high in the wake of the Nuclear Security Summit process. More recently, the IAEA's conference on "Nuclear Security — Commitment and Actions," held the first week of December, attracted over 2,000 participants and more than 50 state ministers. Still, many significant challenges remain in keeping the world’s most dangerous materials from falling into the wrong hands. What steps can the Trump administration realistically take to influence a more secure nuclear future? Please join the Stimson Center as we gather a panel of distinguished experts from government, industry, and civil society to discuss opportunities and challenges the next administration faces in efforts to reduce nuclear dangers.
WHAT: An on-the-record discussion on nuclear challenges and opportunities the Trump administration faces to reduce nuclear dangers. Holiday refreshments will be served followed by a reception.
