Now Showing
 

The Now Showing event-in-a-box toolkits offered by the Stanley Foundation are designed to encourage discussion about the most urgent global issues today. They contain everything needed for an easy-to-plan, successful event. Toolkit materials includes:

  • Event planner and moderator guide chock-full of helpful tips.
  • Color posters to promote your event.
  • Discussion guides for group dialogue.
  • Background materials on the discussion topics.

The following toolkits are available ONLINE ONLY to interested groups and individuals:

Before the Killing Begins: The Politics of Mass Violence
This toolkit considers how early preventive strategies by governments and the international community should build much-needed capacities within countries, and make it harder for leaders to resort to violence. It aims to encourage discussion of how future efforts might better protect populations under threat, giving new resolve to the promise of never again.

Fragile States, Global Consequences
This toolkit features a DVD that helps viewers examine the global challenge of fragile states. It aims to encourage discussion of the growing movement in the international community to find comprehensive ways to promote stronger nations, and, more effective ways to deal with those that are already on the brink of failure.

Radioactive Challenge
This toolkit features a DVD that helps viewers examine the challenge of securing vulnerable nuclear materials globally. It aims to encourage discussion of the complexities of the “world’s greatest security challenge,” keeping nuclear material out of the hands of terrorists.

HIGHLIGHTS
SAFETY Guidelines for Journalists: Radiation Incidents SAFETY Guidelines for Journalists: Radiation Incidents
In the event of a radiation incident such as the use of a so-called dirty bomb or nuclear reactor incident, accurate and swift reporting is vital to public safety. This guide is intended to both help the journalist to be safe if they are covering such a story and to provide basic safety information that can be conveyed to the public to limit the risk of radiation exposure. 

Courier Courier
The Summer 2016 issue of Courier features: “Their name is the Rohingya, a people disowned by their home government, cast away as stateless and homeless. Who will step up and help?” and “Peace at Risk in Burundi—Again.” The issue also includes “Strengthening Nuclear Security in a Post-Summit World,” “No Time to Lose, the 1.5 C Limit in the Paris Agreement,” and “Investigation U. 2016.” The full Summer 2016 issue. PDF (1.0 MB) Subscribe for FREE.

Loung Ung, bestselling author of a trilogy about the 1970s terror and atrocity of Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia, will be the featured speaker and honoree of the 2016 International Women Authors event on October 6 in Davenport, Iowa. The event is sponsored by the Stanley Foundation and its community partner, Women’s Connection of the Quad Cities.

Reporting a Radiation Emergency Reporting a Radiation Emergency
Journalists would play an indispensable role keeping the public informed in an emergency resulting in the release of radiation, either accidental or deliberate. But what do they need to do their job effectively? The following recommendations to authorities who would manage such an emergency were drafted by participants in the 2016 Rotterdam Nuclear Security Workshop for International Journalists.

Nuclear Security Video Nuclear Security Video
The Stanley Foundation produced a 13-minute video looking at what needs to be done to stop terrorist groups from acquiring enough fissile material to make a bomb. The foundation talked with over a dozen diverse and distinguished experts from the Nuclear Security Governance Experts Group and the Fissile Materials Working Group to see how today's patchwork of voluntary arrangements can be forged into a long-lasting system. Watch the video.
