The Project on Managing the Atom advances policy-relevant research on reducing the risk of nuclear and radiological terrorism, stopping the spread of nuclear weapons, reducing the dangers of existing nuclear stockpiles, and assessing the future of civilian nuclear power. Researchers interested in strengthening international cooperation on nonproliferation, aspects of preventing nuclear terrorism, and nuclear policy issues in the Middle East, South Asia, and East Asia are particularly encouraged to apply. Also encouraged are proposals examining steps toward the prohibition of nuclear weapons.
