About the Nuclear Security Summits

2016 Nuclear Security Summit

The Nuclear Security Summit (NSS) process, initiated by President Obama in 2010, has successfully drawn high-level attention to nuclear security.  The summits, which have been held every two years since the first summit in 2010, bring together heads of state to focus on the critical issue of reducing risks from fissile materials proliferation. However, the upcoming summit in 2016 will be the last.  It therefore holds a special significance: the NSS process is ending, but nuclear security requires sustained vigilance and continuous progress.
