This year, the International Atomic Energy Agency is celebrating the 60th anniversary of their establishment on July 29th, 1957. In these 60 years, the IAEA has won the Nobel Peace Prize, responded to the Chernobyl disaster, and has been fully approved by Pope Benedict XVI. Since the US President Dwight D. Eisenhower announced this committee, they have worked continuously to accomplish their three missions: promote peaceful uses, establish safeguards, and set standards for nuclear energy. The scope of possibilities at the IAEA encompasses finding treatment for the Zika virus to attempting to apply safeguards in North Korea.
The IAEA is an intermediate committee that contains a large number of member states.
