NUCLEAR TERRORISM – ARE WE PREPARED FOR IT?

NDU Journal 2010

Abstract

Nuclear terrorism is being touted as the latest on the list of emerging threats. Theoretically speaking, acts of nuclear terrorism can take place outside heavily guarded civil and military facilities, particularly during the transportation of radioactive materials. A number of government agencies in Pakistan are working towards ensuring that such a scenario does not take place. This paper aims at examining the international perceptions about nuclear terrorism and proposing a joint strategy to counter nuclear terrorism by taking all official and non-official stakeholders on board.
