While the wide-ranging impact of COVID-19 is arguably unique, this is not the first time that the global nuclear industry has had to respond to external crises.

Nuclear security experts from the Centre for Science and Security Studies (CSSS) at King’s College London (KCL) and The Stimson Center will present findings from their research into historical cases where external events (political, economic, environmental etc.) have put significant pressure put on nuclear security systems.

This event will highlight case studies and lessons learned that are published in the Nuclear Security during Times of Crisis handbook. The panel will identify how organisations adapted measures in the face of significant challenges and extract lessons for the current pandemic and future crises.
