Unleashing the Nuclear Watchdog: Strengthening and Reform of the IAEA
Centre for International Governance Innovation
Report by: Trevor Findlay, research fellow, Project on Managing the Atom/International Security Program
“The research for this report confirms that, nonetheless, while the IAEA does not need a dramatic overhaul, it does need strengthening and reform — in particular respects. The Agency has not taken advantage of all the authorities and capacities that it has, and it sometimes has failed to seize opportunities staring it in the face. Like all venerable organizations it also suffers from a number of longstanding ‘legacy’ issues that need fixing.”
