Here’s an op-ed in The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists assessing the 2012 Nuclear Security Summit by yours truly. Below are some highlights of the piece:
– The 2012 Nuclear Security Summit in Seoul could have been a watershed moment for nuclear security, but it was largely a review of past successes.
– Still, there were noteworthy accomplishments, like setting a more detailed vision for the safety and security of nuclear and radioactive materials.
– Moving forward, the 2014 summit must be drastically different and must set future goals, rather than dwelling on past accomplishments.
