Our Work in Nuclear Security

The Corporation is one of the main private philanthropic supporters of nongovernmental work on nuclear weapons strategy, security, and nonproliferation. The Nuclear Security subprogram operates in a context of challenges that emanate from rivalries among nuclear powers, technological advances, inadequate global governance of nuclear activity, expanded access to nuclear materials and know-how, and potential nuclear threats. To reduce nuclear risks resulting from geopolitical and technological change, gaps in nuclear governance, and regional challenges with a nuclear dimension in North Korea and Iran.  Grants aim to advance policy-relevant research, disseminate and apply key insights, strengthen expertise, and promote international cooperation among scholars and institutions.
