Mohamed ElBaradei

  • Former Vice President of Egypt
  • Director General, International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), 1997-2009
  • Nobel Peace Prize Laureate

For the past two decades, Nobel Laureate Mohamed ElBaradei has played a key role in the most high-stakes conflicts of our time. Unique in maintaining credibility in the Arab world and the West alike, Dr. ElBaradei has emerged as a singularly independent, uncompromised voice.

A prominent voice for peace, freedom and democracy in the Arab and Islamic worlds, he played a leadership role in the Arab Spring of 2011 and was asked to take on the responsibility of interim Vice President of Egypt, a position from which he resigned in 2013. Dr. ElBaradei is a leading voice on the march toward democracy in Egypt, and was featured in Foreign Policy Magazine's Top 100 Global Thinkers list for "helping put the political demands of Egypt's citizens on a global stage."

He offers unparalleled insights from his 12 years at the helm of the International Atomic Energy Agency, for which he and the IAEA were jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

Dr. ElBaradei speaks about democratic reform, global security, the peaceful use of nuclear energy, and other subjects that draw upon his experience as an international statesman.

Mohamed ElBaradei Speech Topics

Egypt's March Towards Democracy - The Road Ahead

Dr. ElBaradei has been a leading figure in Egypt's march toward Democracy and was a resounding voice for change during the historic events that transpired in the streets of Cairo. In this presentation he recounts the confluence of events that led to the uprising and lays forth his vision for Egypt's future. This is an opportunity for your audience to learn from a visionary leader and hear a first-hand-account of democratic reform.

Preventing a Nuclear Nightmare

As world powers condemn Iran over its nuclear program and demand that Iran freeze nuclear activities, Dr. ElBaradei knows firsthand how difficult the path ahead will be in ensuring nuclear energy is not misused for destruction. Iraq, Iran, North Korea, Libya and Syria are all sobering reminders of how fragile the global security system is and of the need for a new equitable and inclusive paradigm of international cooperation. Drawing on his experience with high-stakes negotiations, Dr. ElBaradei discusses global security and the road map for the path to peace.

Nuclear Technology in a Changing World

Living in the nuclear age, the global community is rapidly approaching a crossroads. The benefits of nuclear energy and other nuclear technologies are needed more than ever, but nuclear weapons and nuclear terrorism pose a serious security threat to humanity. Will this technology continue to be harnessed as a servant to development or will we become the victims of its destructive power? Nobel Peace Laureate Mohamed ElBaradei believes the stage is set for change to maximize the benefit and minimize the risk. He considers why the future of nuclear technology will depend not only on continued technological innovation but also on vision, leadership and international cooperation for a new nuclear order.

The Road To a Durable Peace

The current global system is marred by inequality and insecurity and Dr. ElBaradei believes it is not sustainable. He sees the inextricable linkage between under-development, inequity and insecurity and believes a change of mindset is vital if we are to save ourselves from self destruction.

Mohamed ElBaradei Biography, Background, and Speaker Profile

Dr. ElBaradei served three terms as Director General of the IAEA, an intergovernmental organization, part of the United Nations system, with a mandate to make nuclear technology available for peaceful purposes and to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons. During his tenure, Dr. ElBaradei pioneered measures to strengthen the non-proliferation regime and was a staunch advocate of nuclear disarmament. He also made a priority of promoting the peaceful uses of nuclear power for development to redress inequality and help lift the one third of humanity who live on under two dollars a day out of poverty.

In October 2005, Dr. ElBaradei and the IAEA were jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize "for their efforts to prevent nuclear energy from being used for military purposes and to ensure that nuclear energy for peaceful purposes is used in the safest possible way." In its citation, the Norwegian Nobel Committee referred to the IAEA’s work as being of "incalculable importance", describing Dr. ElBaradei as an "unafraid advocate" of new measures to strengthen the nuclear non-proliferation regime.
