  Alternative Visions for Our Shared Nuclear Future: Energy, Security, and Policy (Workshop on Nuclear Security)  
(National Capital Region)

The nuclear energy industry plays a vital role in America's future, affecting U.S. energy security, sustainability, and national security. Yet the industry faces new and unprecedented challenges. Aging domestic infrastructure, international competition from Russia, China, and others, and geopolitical instability create profound uncertainties for the U.S. nuclear industry.

This workshop examines how the U.S. might balance competing priorities as policy makers review the nation's nuclear energy policy. It seeks to overcome the traditional segmentation of safety, security and safeguards in the nuclear field in order to gain a more comprehensive perspective on how the nuclear sector can respond to current challenges.

By linking commercial and strategic concerns, and by bringing together policymakers, business leaders, and scholars across different fields, it charts new approaches to nuclear issues and elucidates alternative visions for our shared nuclear future.
