The “Strengthening Nuclear Security Implementation” initiative broke new ground at the 2014 Nuclear Security Summit in the effort to harmonize and strengthen the global nuclear security regime.
This report discusses the significance of the the initiative, the importance of expanding its signatories, and the need to demonstrate its implementation. It benefits from the insights and experience of Nuclear Security Governance Expert Group (NSGEG) members and draws upon major themes of discussion at NSGEG workshops in Vienna, Austria (2014) and Washington, D.C. (2015).
The NSGEG is a multi-sector coalition of experts with diverse nuclear experience that has developed more than 50 recommendations for improving nuclear security. It is a project of the Asan Institute for Policy Studies, Partnership for Global Security, and the Stanley Foundation.
