How does the Institute help people in my community?

The Institute works to create a world safe from the dangers posed by the spread of nuclear weapons to irresponsible governments or terrorist groups. We believe that an informed public plays an important role in reducing this danger. The Institute broadly disseminates its findings in a variety of ways to ensure that the public understands the threats posed by nuclear weapons and U.S. policies to prevent proliferation. Many of these publications are posted on this web site. In this manner, the Institute enriches the public discussion about how to best address issues related to nuclear weapons, nuclear explosive materials, and proliferation.
