In cooperation with The Norwegian Atlantic Committee and the Norwegian Nobel Institute we have the pleasure of inviting you to Sikkerhetspolitisk dypdykk: Nuclear Security.
Nuclear security is at the heart of the evolving nuclear proliferation agenda. There has been a nonproliferation treaty in place since 1970, but there is nothing in place to stop countries from enriching uranium for civilian purposes. Ultimately, what are the implications of producing material on a large scale that easily can be converted into highly enriched forms used in nuclear weapons? The Low Enriched Uranium (LEU) Bank that is being established in Kazakhstan may be part of the answer.
With us to discuss the lessons from this initiative is some of the best qualified voices in the world:
Yukiya Amano, Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)
Erlan Idrissov, prev. Minister of Foreign Affairs of Kazakhstan.
Lassina Zerbo, Executive Secretary of the Preparatory Commission of Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (CTBO).
Introduction will be given by Olav Njølstad, Director of the Norwegian Nobel Institute.
Moderator is author and journalist Christian Borch.
The event is free and open for all. Welcome!
