The 2012 NTI Nuclear Materials Security Index


The NTI Nuclear Materials Security Index is a ground-breaking project to publicly benchmark nuclear materials security conditions on a country-by-country basis.

The Index, prepared with the Economist Intelligence Unit with guidance from international experts, was created to spark an international discussion about priorities required to strengthen security, and encourage governments to take actions to reduce risks.

On 5 March 2012, the Lowy Institute held a special briefing about the NTI Nuclear Materials Security Index followed by a Q&A session with co-lead of the NTI Index project, Deepti Choubey, the NTI Senior Director for Nuclear and Bio-Security. Lowy Institute Visiting Fellow John Carlson, an expert panellist for the Index, acted as discussant.
