    In conjunction with the release of its report, “Nuclear Security and Nuclear Counterterrorism: Streamlining and Updating the Legal Framework,” the Center for International Trade and Security (CITS) hosted a panel discussion about the upcoming international summit on nuclear security.

    The panel featured short presentations by Igor Khripunov, CITS Interim Director, Charles Ferguson, President of the Federation of American Scientists (FAS), Ken Luongo, President of the Partnership for Global Security, Mary Beth Nikitin, Senior Researcher at the Congressional Research Service (CRS), and Sharon Squassoni, Senior Fellow and Director of the Proliferation Prevention Program at CSIS.

    Luongo began, providing details on the summit’s agenda.  The summit will span three days.  The main meeting of forty-four heads of state on April 13th will be sandwiched between a non-governmental summit on the 12th and a nuclear industry summit on the 14th, both of which should have a lot of international participation.
