Work conducted by the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) has been recognised in a multinational statement made at 2014 Nuclear Security Summit in The Hague.
RUSI was cited as part of a multinational statement, supported by 35 nations, highlighting initiatives to raise awareness on nuclear information security issues. In collaboration with King's College London and the UK and Dutch Governments, RUSI's UK Project on Nuclear Issues (UK PONI) hosted an expert workshop to showcase and stimulate debate on nuclear information security. Participants comprised a mix of high-level political representatives (including the Dutch sherpa for the Nuclear Security Summit) and nuclear security experts from industry and academia.
The 2014 Nuclear Security Summit has brought together fifty-three world leaders to reduce the threat of nuclear terrorism by increasing the security of nuclear materials around the world. At the previous summit in Seoul, thirty-five states joined an initiative to protect the sensitive nuclear information, technology and expertise necessary to acquire or use nuclear material, or to disrupt nuclear facilities.
