Dr. Christopher Ford will discuss the State Department’s efforts to encourage a “new normal” for nuclear security that establishes healthy patterns that can and will be sustained indefinitely.

As the Nuclear Security Summits recede into the past, it is important that the world’s leaders not forget about nuclear security. Where the Summits played a valuable role in jump-starting attention to this challenge, the global community must now do the longer-term work of making sound nuclear security decisions into a day-to-day habit, rather than just a mere pledge.
