NTI is working with partners Creative Santa Fe, N Square, and Pop Tech to host The Santa Fe Nuclear Weapons Summit in December. This three-day summit is designed to engage a new type of discussion about nuclear security and proliferation.
NTI and the U.S. Department of State are hosting a side event at the United Nations First Committee on the IPNDV. The IPNDV is a public-private partnership between the U.S. Department of State and NTI, and is a major, multi-year effort to further the understanding of the complex technical challenges involved in nuclear verification.
Experts, including NTI President Joan Rohlfing, discussed U.S. policy towards nuclear modernization, the costs and benefits of developing a new generation of nuclear weapons, and the effects on the balance of power among nuclear states.
NTI’s Andrew Bieniawski, Vice President of Material Security and Minimization was interviewed by The Atlantic’s Steven Brill at an event in Washington, D.C. entitled, “Are We Any Safer?” which examined the strengths and remaining vulnerabilities of the U.S. security apparatus and ability to prevent the next terrorist attack—or recover from it.
Next week, the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI), in partnership with the European Leadership Network (ELN) and Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) will host a delegation of European parliamentarians for an International Dialogue on Global Nuclear Security from September 11-13th in Washington, D.C.
