To the extent possible the panel will comprise experts from Member States with different risk profiles, nuclear and radiological capabilities and socio-economic conditions. The experts will also represent perse stakeholders: government, regulators and operators, as well as an international expert with previous experience in the IAEA Secretariat (e.g. a former staff member in the Department of Technical Cooperation) who can collectively frame the discussion in terms of the importance of nuclear security for development.
