Nuclear terrorism remains a real and urgent threat. Despite a rather impressive array of mechanisms established to combat this threat, several serious problems persist, requiring relentless attention and actions by the United States, Russia and other responsible nations. These include the ongoing nuclear security vulnerabilities in a number of countries and the continued incidents of illicit trafficking in nuclear materials, radioactive sources and the various components.

The EastWest Institute will host "Preventing Nuclear Terrorism: Recommendations Based on a U.S.-Russian Joint Threat Assessment," a seminar with William Tobey of Harvard's Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs and Pavel Zolotarev of the Institute for U.S. and Canada Studies. The presentation will center on a groundbreaking new report, produced jointly by the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs and the Russian Academy of Sciences' Institute for U.S. and Canadian Studies (ISKRAN), that outlines concrete steps for the United States and Russia to take in leading international efforts to combat the threat of nuclear terrorism.
