International Convention on Nuclear Security
An International Convention on Nuclear Security (ICNS) would fill the dangerous gaps in the current nuclear security regime and create an effective and sustainable global system. Find out what this would entail when the NSGEG releases the ICNS on March 24 in Washington, D.C.
The ICNS was written during the course of two years by four NSGEG members with expertise in nuclear security, international law, and foreign affairs: Ambassador John Bernhard, Ambassador Kenneth C. Brill, Dr. Anita Nilsson, and Dr. Shin Chang-Hoon.
- Ambassador John Bernhard served as the Permanent Representative of Denmark to the IAEA and a Legal Advisor to the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs during his 37-year diplomatic career.
- Ambassador Kenneth C. Brill served as the founding director of the U.S. National Counterproliferation Center and ambassador to the IAEA during his 35-year career in the U.S. Foreign Service.
- Dr. Anita Nilsson is the head of AN & Associates and served as the director of the Office of Nuclear Security at the IAEA and in leadership positions at the Swedish Nuclear Power Inspectorate.
- Dr. Shin Chang-Hoon is the Director of the Center for Global Governance in the International Law and Conflict Resolution Program and Nuclear Policy and Technology Program at The Asan Institute for International Policy in the Republic of Korea.
