This primer provides an overview of the key agreements, guidelines, multilateral engagement mechanisms, and implementation services that make up today’s nuclear security system. It also summarizes the benefits and limitations of each. Originally prepared for discussions related to the Global Dialogue on Nuclear Security Priorities, the document includes sections on agreements and guidelines, multilateral engagement mechanisms, and implementation services.
The Global Dialogue is an international, cross-sector dialogue among leading officials, experts, and practitioners on priorities and actions needed to strengthen the global nuclear security system to prevent nuclear materials from getting into the wrong hands. NTI launched the project in July 2012.
