    Nonproliferation and the Global Nuclear Renaissance: Bridging the Gap [Remarks from Mohamed ElBaradei]
    (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008-03-31) ElBaradei, Mohamed
    Mohamed ElBaradei is currently serving his third term as Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), an intergovernmental organization sponsored by the United Nations. From 1984, he was a senior staff member of the IAEA Secretariat, holding a number of high-level policy positions, including that of the Agency’s Legal Adviser and subsequently the Assistant Director General for External Relations. ElBaradei began his career in the Egyptian Diplomatic Service in 1964, serving in the Permanent Missions of Egypt to the United Nations in New York and Geneva in charge of political, legal, and arms control issues. From 1974 to 1978, he was a Special Assistant to the Foreign Minister of Egypt and a member of various presidential and ministerial bilateral delegations including the negotiating team that led to the conclusion of the disengagement agreements between Egypt and Israel. In 1980, he left the Diplomatic Service to join the United Nations and became a Senior Fellow in charge of the International Law Program at the United Nations Institute for Training and Research. From 1981 to 1987, he was also an Adjunct Professor of International Law at the New York University School of Law. During his career as diplomat, international civil servant and scholar, ElBaradei has become intimately involved with the work and processes of international organizations, particularly in the fields of international peace and security, and international development. He has lectured widely in the fields of international law, international organizations, arms control, and the peaceful uses of nuclear energy; has authored various articles and books; and belongs to a number of professional associations. In October 2005, ElBaradei and the IAEA were jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for their efforts to prevent military use of nuclear energy and to ensure the safe use of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes. In its citation, the Nobel Committee referred to the importance of IAEA’s work calling ElBaradei an "unafraid advocate" of new measures to strengthen the nuclear non-proliferation regime.
