The Carnegie Nuclear Policy Program works to strengthen international security by diagnosing acute nuclear risks, informing debates on solutions, and engaging international actors to effect change. The program’s work spans deterrence, disarmament, nonproliferation, nuclear security, and nuclear energy.
The U.S.-Russian arms control infrastructure is decaying just as many non-nuclear-weapon states are demanding reinvigorated disarmament efforts. What can be done to diffuse the resulting tensions and mitigate nuclear risks?
The Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty is under strain. Iran and North Korea pose complex challenges. There is discord over the pace of disarmament. Stasis prevents the strengthening of nonproliferation institutions. How can states find common ground?
Prospects for nuclear energy dimmed after the 2011 Fukushima accident. With only a handful of states investing today in the future of nuclear power, how can high standards for safety, security and safeguards be maintained?
Nuclear weapons are assuming a greater role in international politics. New technologies are increasing the risk that they will be used. What policies strike the best balance between deterring aggression and minimizing the risks of escalation?
In an increasingly crowded, chaotic, and contested world and marketplace of ideas, Carnegie offers decisionmakers global, independent, and strategic insight and innovative ideas that advance international peace.
