Next Steps in Preventing Nuclear Terrorism
Thursday, November 29
9:30 - 11:00 am
9/11 demonstrated the havoc that a terrorist attack can wreak on American society. Even more frightening is one involving nuclear or radiological materials.
With so many ways of getting a bomb onto U.S. soil, the United States has employed a multi-layered defense initiative to counter these threats, including: locking down dangerous nuclear materials; interdicting loose nuclear material or nuclear-related technology that could fall into the wrong hands; and preventing terrorists, or their state sponsors, from smuggling nuclear items into the country.
The 2012 Nuclear Security Summit in Seoul called for further action to eliminate and secure dangerous nuclear and radiological material. What other steps can be taken to strengthen nuclear material security in coming years?
Hudson Institute hosted an expert panel to discuss this critical challenge and the path forward.
Richard Weitz, Thomas Countryman, Miles Pomper, and Kenneth Luongo
