This section includes useful reports and documents relating to nuclear security. These documents have been drawn from work done by the Project on Managing the Atom at Harvard Kennedy School’s Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, as well as from other leading experts working on nuclear security. We have broken this section into three main topics: Threats and Vulnerabilities, Progress and Work Remaining, and Recommendations for Action.
“Threats and Vulnerabilities” includes information and analysis on what nuclear security threats and vulnerabilities exist today. “Progress and Gaps” includes information on what progress has been made and what work remains to be done on nuclear security. This section includes ten sub-sections:
- Security for Nuclear Weapons and Materials
- Reducing the Number of Sites to Protect
- Security for Nuclear Power Plants and Facilities
- Security for Radiological Sources
- Nuclear Security Culture
- Best Practices and Training
- Global Governance of Nuclear Security
- Constraining Production of Weapons-Usable Material
- Stopping Nuclear Smuggling
“Recommendations for Action” include recommendations on strengthening nuclear security for policymakers as well as operators of nuclear facilities and facilities using radiological materials.
