      Initiated in 2010, the Nuclear Security Summits are an accelerated global effort to prevent nuclear terrorism. By gathering heads of government and their teams to tackle this threat, the Summits create a unique forum for action. There have been success stories, but is the process fully meeting the challenge? This panel includes commentators with experience in government, with the International Atomic Energy Agency and as experts with influential voices shaping the global nuclear security agenda. The discussion will address: • How have the Summits been able to drive successful actions? • What are concrete examples of success stories regarding specific countries or the Summit process as a whole? • What are expectations for the outcomes of the 2014 Nuclear Security Summit? • What are the most important challenges remaining? • What is the path ahead to the next Nuclear Security Summit in 2016 and beyond? With: Ms. Deepti Choubey, Senior Director for Nuclear and Bio-Security, Nuclear Threat Initiative Ms. Corey Hinderstein, Vice President, International Programs, Nuclear Threat Initiative Ms. Anita B. Nilsson, President, AN & Associates, former Director of the IAEA Office of Nuclear Security Mr. William Tobey, Senior Fellow, Harvard University, Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs Moderator: Charles Groenhuijsen

                • Press Conference: Bold Action Needed to Guard Against Nuclear Terrorism

                  Contact: Jack Kimball, +1 563 554 3429, jkimball@stanleyfoundation.org Bold Action Needed to Guard Against Nuclear Terrorism WASHINGTON, DC, March 5 – President Barack Obama must take bold action to secure a legacy free from the specter of nuclear terrorism when he meets with world leaders later this month, according to security experts representing a coalition of more than 70 bipartisan non-governmental organizations. On March 24-25, leaders from 53 countries will gather in The Hague for the third Nuclear Security Summit in a move to reduce the risk that weapons-usable nuclear materials fall into the wrong hands. “Nuclear terrorism is not a Hollywood fantasy,” Kenneth Brill, a former US Ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), said at a press conference on Wednesday. “A variety of terrorist groups has ambitions to use nuclear or radioactive material in an explosive device. The material that terrorists need is vulnerable because security practices vary widely,” Brill said. Protecting the vast amount of nuclear material globally is a mammoth task, but maintaining the status-quo is inadequate and dangerous. World-wide there is enough nuclear material to build 20,000 weapons similar to the one that leveled Hiroshima during WWII and almost 80,000 more like the one that destroyed Nagasaki. “Preventing nuclear terrorism is a global problem,” said Kelsey Davenport, a nonproliferation analyst at the Arms Control Association and co-author of a new report: “Nuclear Security Summit: Assessment of Joint Statements.” "Multilateral initiatives from the previous nuclear security summits are improving some targeted areas, but broader and more ambitious action is needed to strengthen the global nuclear security system,” Davenport said. In the five years since President Obama launched the nuclear security summit process, there has been progress locking down the global supply of weapons-usable materials, but the key challenge remains—transforming the current opaque and voluntary scheme into a transparent and legally-binding system. “It is clear from the past two summits that that none of the other participating nations will be more ambitious than the United States in pushing for needed new policies,” said Kenneth Luongo, the president of the Partnership for Global Security. “President Obama needs to offer bold, new ideas that can eliminate persistent weak links in the nuclear security system and sell them to his reluctant partners. That will create a legacy worthy of the high expectations and costs of the summits,” Luongo said. There are more than a hundred thefts and other incidents involving nuclear and radioactive material each year, according to the IAEA, in regions ranging from Latin America and Europe to Central Asia and Africa. Since the 1990s, there have been more than 2,300 cases of illicit or unauthorized trafficking of nuclear and radiological materials logged by the IAEA. “The nuclear summits have spurred progress, but there is a clear need for leaders to develop an effective global system to secure all materials and give countries the capacity to assess nuclear security globally while holding each other accountable,” said Page Stoutland, a vice president at the Nuclear Threat Initiative. World leaders need to develop a plan for handling nuclear material security after what is likely the final summit in the United States in 2016 and should include military stockpiles, which account for the vast majority of weapons-useable material, in the summit process. "Innovations need to be turned into action and we need a platform to extend beyond 2016," Luongo told journalists. " There's a cliff coming in 2016 and we need to build a bridge to the future," Luongo said.

In every respect the Nuclear Security Summit 2014 (NSS) is a world summit, aimed at preventing nuclear terrorism around the globe. Lava commisioned us to set the NSS grid-based identity in motion. We've build up the grid, broke it down, flew through it and made it wavy while maintaining the serious character of the summit.
