|Abstract:||Nuclear Safety, Security and Safeguards (the 3S) and Non-Proliferation play a key role in the build-up and maintenance of the verification regime and the progress towards a nuclear-weapon-free world. This is of particular significance this year, since 2015 marks the 70th anniversary of the first nuclear-weapon test (Trinity, 16 July 1945) and the destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki (6 and 9 August 1945). Also, four years have passed after the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant accident and its environmental consequences, and an important rethinking of the ways civil nuclear energy can be still exploited is underway. In the spirit of Amaldi’s intuition, the Conference was proposed as a forum where eminent scientists, diplomats and policy makers could compare national perspectives and update international collaborations, while discussing how Science beyond Boundaries may enhance nuclear non-proliferation policies. A total of 30 plenary speeches have been presented by lecturers from international organizations: European Commission, International Atomic Energy Agency, Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization, Pugwash Conferences on Sciences and World Affairs, and from 14 countries: Argentina, Belgium, China, Finland, France, Germany, India, Iran, Israel, Italy, Japan, Pakistan, Russia, United States of America. Talks have illustrated the political, institutional and legal dimension of the nuclear 3S, of the Non-Proliferation Regulation Systems, of the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty and have addressed the current challenges by attempting to identify possible solutions and future improvements. The XIX Edoardo Amaldi Conference—International Cooperation for Enhancing Nuclear Safety, Security, Safeguards and Non-proliferation—was held in Rome, Italy, during 30–31 March 2015, organized by the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei and the European Commission—Directorate-General Joint Research Centre, under the patronage of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the support of the European Commission—Directorate-General for International Cooperation and Development.|
