Nuclear Risk Reduction: Where to go from here

Nuclear risk is dynamic, but currently rising. What are the essential issues that Member States should focus on? How can they respond in ways that manage and reduce nuclear risk and contribute to momentum towards nuclear disarmament efforts? This interactive event—held on the margins of the UN General Assembly First Committee—draws upon existing and ongoing research by UNIDIR and others, and discusses possible ways forward.
