New Report Cites Progress, Challenges in Nuclear Security
This study finds that the international initiative to secure all vulnerable nuclear stockpiles within four years has reduced the dangers posed by many of the world's highest-risk nuclear stockpiles. But the analysis, by researchers at Harvard University's Project on Managing the Atom, also concludes that much will remain to be done to ensure that all nuclear weapons and material are secure when the current four-year effort comes to an end.
The co-authors are Matthew Bunn, associate professor of public policy at Harvard Kennedy School, Martin B. Malin, executive director of the Project on Managing the Atom in the Kennedy School's Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, and research associate Eben Harrell.
The study was released in advance of the Seoul summit on March 26-27, 2012, being attended by leaders or senior officials from 54 countries and four international organizations.Download the PDF
