Following over four years of work, Stimson’s Nuclear Security Program is proud to present the culmination of its research exploring incentives that would encourage the civilian nuclear sector to adopt cost-effective security practices that go beyond regulatory minimums. The research led to the development of a Security Governance Template to help licensees perform a high-level review of their security practices while facilitating communication with stakeholders.

Since adopting its landmark Policy on the Protection of Civilians (PoC) in 2016, NATO has made meaningful progress toward implementation.

Please join us as we discuss the history of the Policy, its importance for NATO’s future, and opportunities and recommendations for further implementation.
