Nuclear Crisis Communications: Mapping Risk Reduction Implementation Pathways

Sylvia Mishra

SUMMARY

Over the past few years, an international consensus has been converging on nuclear risk reduction, and tangible implementation proposals have focused on nuclear crisis communications systems.

There are at least two scalable pathways to a crisis communications system:

  1. The P5 focus on effective crisis communications in their ongoing P5 Process and Strategic Risk Reduction Working Group.
  2. The P5 states and Stockholm Initiative members lead a working group on crisis communication.

The two proposed pathways can tackle existing challenges. The first pathway could help stimulate the P5 Process and encourage continuation of dialogue among the P5 about practical implementations for crisis communication systems. The second pathway would act as a bridge between nuclear weapons states and non-nuclear weapons states and strengthen the process of global accountability in the context of risk reduction and crisis communication.
