Nuclear Security Summit Discussion To Be Held May 9 in Washington, D.C.

Progress and Prospects from Two Years On

The Northeast Chapter of INMM, in conjunction with The George Washington University Elliott School of International Affairs, will hold an early summer meeting on May 9 from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. in the 6th Floor Lindner Commons at 1957 E Street NW, Washington, D.C.  As part of the Elliott School’s Nuclear Policy Talks, this meeting will discuss the status of agreements and resolutions reached during the last summit.

Two years have now passed since the last Nuclear Security Summit (NSS) in the series of biannual meetings of more than 50 world leaders. The summit “process” resulted in technically and politically significant outcomes that have reduced the risk of nuclear terrorism and set the international community on a path to greater cooperation and transparency regarding nuclear security.

Ambassador Laura Holgate, who participated as part of the U.S. team in all four summits, will join INMM President Corey Hinderstein to discuss the ongoing successes and continued challenges of implementing Summit outcomes and building a sustainable, robust, international nuclear security architecture.
