ESI and CIL jointly organised a two-day training course on nuclear security for Singapore government officials, which was held on 31 January and 1 February 2018.  The closed-door event was the third capacity building activity held under the umbrella of the ESI-CIL Nuclear Governance Project. The objective of the course was to provide an introduction to those aspects of nuclear security that are likely to be most relevant to Singapore, namely: (1) The international legal framework for nuclear security; (2)state responsibilities in nuclear security governance; (3) security of nuclear transport in Southeast Asia; and (4) contingency planning in response to a nuclear event.

Mr Roger Brunt (former Director of the UK’s Civil Nuclear Security); Mr Denis Flory (former Deputy Director General of the IAEA); Mr Ben Whittard (Head of Security and Resilience at International Nuclear Services); together with Mr Anthony Wetherall (CIL Senior Research Fellow); lent their expertise to the 15 course participants representing a number of relevant government agencies in Singapore. The event was also observed by five researchers from local universities and think tanks.
