Nuclear Security RSS Feed

Nuclear and radiological terrorism are threats that hold great potential for human harm. These threats can only be addressed through universal responsibility and leadership of national governments and effective multilateral action.

Countries need to build on ambitious high-level commitments made through the Nuclear Security Summit process and in other international venues in order to improve governance on the national, bilateral, regional, and multilateral levels and strengthen the nuclear security architecture. Sustainable progress also requires the involvement of civil society and industry alongside stakeholders from national governments and international organizations. 


Current Work

Building on the Stanley Foundation’s work on nuclear arms control, disarmament, and nonproliferation issues over the last five decades, today’s nuclear security programming draws on our strengths as a convener of key stakeholders, including international organizations, national governments, civil society, and industry. We commission expert analysis in order to encourage innovative policy ideas and actively engage the media on nuclear security issues.

Additionally, the foundation is a part of the work of the Fissile Materials Working Group, a nongovernmental coalition of more than 70 organizations from around the world, and the Nuclear Security Governance Experts Group, a globally diverse group with broad nuclear sector experience. Representatives of these two civil society groups have been active participants in the Nuclear Security Summit process, working to develop actionable policy recommendations and articulate a long-term vision for nuclear security.

The foundation’s recent projects in the nuclear security area have also included meetings to promote collaboration among nuclear security centers of excellence and workshops to facilitate the implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 1540.
