The teaching of both theory and empirics can contribute to policymaking and, hopefully, to cultivating future policymakers. The previous decade, in particular, has seen a rise in post-graduate academic programs focused on nuclear issues, which include activities such as crisis simulations and policy analysis. This event will provide an overview of such programs, and explore how new approaches to nuclear education can help address specific policy challenges. Former and current students of nuclear education programs are particularly welcome to attend to discuss and draw lessons from their experiences. Policy experts and practitioners are also encouraged to participate to identify gaps between theory and policymaking and suggest how education programs can help to fill them.
