The Nuclear Security Summit (NSS) process significantly strengthened the global nuclear security architecture and brought high-level political attention to the risk posed by nuclear terrorism. The NSS pioneered the use of regular and voluntary nuclear security commitment-making by states and groups of states, leading to the creation of an effective new tool for continuously improving the nuclear security regime.

While the NSS process ended in 2016, the threat posed by nuclear terrorism remains and the nuclear security regime must continue to evolve to address it.

To discuss the contributions of the NSS process and the state of the global nuclear security architecture, the Fissile Materials Working Group (FMWG) invites you to a panel discussion and reception. A new report from the Arms Control Association and the FMWG, which offers a comprehensive assessment of the national commitments states undertook as part of the process from 2010–2016, will be released at the event.
