Nuclear Security: The Problems and the Road Ahead

Sidney Drell
Henry A. Kissinger

Chairman of Kissinger Associates, Inc., former U.S. Secretary of State

George P. Shultz

Former U.S. Secretary of State

In a new book examining global efforts to control nuclear weapons and ensure the safety of the global nuclear enterprise, former Secretary of State George Shultz, NTI Co-Chairman Sam Nunn, Hoover Institution Senior Fellow Sidney Drell and former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger offer recommendations for reducing risks and discuss what can be learned from past successes and failures.

The book draws from papers presented at the 2013 meeting of the American Nuclear Society. In the opening speech at that meeting, Nunn called on the global community to take two key steps to prevent nuclear catastrophe: secure all nuclear weapons and materials to the highest possible standards and develop a new approach to managing risks associated with producing fuel for nuclear power.

“The future of the nuclear enterprise, including the future of the nuclear power industry, requires that every link of the nuclear chain be secure—because the catastrophic use of atoms for terrorism will jeopardize the future of atoms for peace,” Nunn said.
