April 2023 Global Dialogue

  • Vienna, Austria

The Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) convened nuclear security leaders from across governments and industry, as well as international, research, and non-governmental organizations, for the sixteenth meeting of the Global Dialogue on Nuclear Security Priorities. Held in Vienna, Austria from April 12-14, 2023, it was the largest meeting of the Global Dialogue since before the COVID-19 pandemic.

The meeting focused on the most pressing nuclear security issues of the day:

  • How to improve nuclear security resilience in an increasingly uncertain world
  • Whether or not nuclear security conditions are improving or declining
  • How to translate multilateral nuclear security progress into better implementation on the ground
  • How diversity, equity, and inclusion can strengthen nuclear security culture
  • What issues countries should prioritize at the 2024 International Conference on Nuclear Security

These discussions were supported by two papers:

The day before the Dialogue began, NTI hosted the first-ever Emerging Nuclear Security Leaders session. NTI invited five emerging leaders from around the world for a discussion on how to use storytelling to transmit important lessons and a “Nuclear Security Braintrust” where leaders presented and received feedback on policy concepts from their peers and select Global Dialogue participants.
