The release of “Unleashing the Nuclear Watchdog: Strengthening and Reform of the IAEA” marks the culmination of a two-year research project that examined all aspects of the Agency’s mandate and operations ― from major programs on safeguards, safety, security and the peaceful uses of nuclear energy to governance, management and finance. The report makes multiple recommendations, both strategic and programmatic, for strengthening and reform of the Agency. The project was a joint undertaking of CIGI’s global security program and the Canadian Centre for Treaty Compliance (CCTC) at the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs (NPSIA) at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada.
Professor Findlay holds a joint fellowship with the International Security Program and the Project on Managing the Atom at the Harvard Kennedy School's Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs. He also holds the William and Jeanie Barton Chair in International Affairs at NPSIA and is director of the CCTC.
Through his work as a diplomat, a delegate to United Nations bodies and involvement with non-governmental organizations in the field, Trevor Findlay has an extensive background in the field of disarmament, arms control and non-proliferation. A CIGI senior fellow, Trevor joined the centre in 2006 and has led various projects on nuclear governance. He also holds the William and Jeanie Barton Chair in International Affairs at Carleton University in Ottawa.
