The Nuclear Security Summit (NSS) process significantly strengthened the global nuclear security architecture and brought high-level political attention to the risk posed by nuclear terrorism. The NSS pioneered the use of regular and voluntary nuclear security commitment-making by states and groups of states, leading to the creation of an effective new tool for continuously improving the nuclear security regime.
To commemorate the release of the Nuclear Security Summit Scorecard – a new report which offers a comprehensive assessment of the national commitments states undertook as part of the process from 2010–2016 – the FMWG is proud to host a panel discussion and reception.
