The second of a two‐part exercise, the IPCS discussion on India and Global Nuclear Materials Security aimed to review and critique India's commitments and responsibilities in the run-up to the 2014 Nuclear Security Summit in the Hague, Netherlands. The following questions guided the discussion:

•How does India see the threat of nuclear terrorism?

•What systems does India have in place to ensure the security of nuclear materials?

•What are the impediments to their successful implementation? What is the level of implementation? How can this be improved?

•What can India contribute to strengthen global efforts to secure nuclear materials worldwide?
