This publication presents the proceedings of an international conference in the field of nuclear security, which took place at the IAEA Headquarters in Vienna from 5–9 December 2016. The conference was convened to discuss the international community’s experiences and achievements in strengthening nuclear security, to enhance understanding of current approaches to nuclear security worldwide, to identify trends and to provide an inclusive forum at which ministers, policy makers, senior officials and nuclear security experts could formulate and exchange views on future directions and priorities for nuclear security. The publication contains the President’s summary of the conference, a summary of the ministerial segment, the full text of the ministerial declaration adopted by the conference, statements from the opening and closing sessions, an outline of the conference programme and a list of invited contributions. For the first time, the IAEA invited students and young professionals to submit an essay on a topic related to the conference for review by a panel of international judges. The three winning essays are reproduced in this publication. The attached CD-ROM contains the full conference programme, the list of conference participants, the national statements from the ministerial segment, and a selection of papers and presentations from the conference.
