Uncertainty and Disputed Values: The Role of Non-State Actors in Global Nuclear Security

On 24-25 March 2014, the third Nuclear Security Summit (NSS) lead by U.S. President Obama, will bring more than 6,000 policy makers, advisers, journalists and academics to The Hague.

This world summit will focus on reducing the amount of nuclear material in the world, improving the security of existing nuclear materials, and improving international cooperation.

The NSS offers a unique opportunity for Hague-based academic and policy institutions to present their expertise to the outside world. The Hague Institute for Global Justice, in partnership with the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), organized and convened experts for a roundtable to explore the governance of nuclear security issues.

In particular, this event addressed the influence of non-traditional stakeholders (civil society groups, scientists, industry experts, etc.) on decision making through campaigning, Track II diplomacy, and the mobilization of new perspectives on nuclear security. The event aimed to advance ideas and policy recommendations in the governance of nuclear security.

This event took place under the Nuclear Knowledge Summit (NKS) event series. For more information, visit theNKS website.

The event program is available on the right side of this page.
