SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA — The Department of Government and International Relations at the University of Sydney aims to produce world class research to improve understanding of real world political phenomena. "Technology and Knowledge Transfer in Nuclear Proliferation Networks: Towards an Integrative Framework" will investigate new ways to identify and exploit vulnerabilities of nuclear component-, material- and knowledge-trafficking networks. This will inform intelligence gathering and policy analysis and refine security measures and policy on counter- and non-proliferation, counter-terrorism and nuclear security. Funds will be used for teaching relief, research assistants, presentation of results, external assessment, travel to present findings and conduct workshops and outreach.
The MacArthur Foundation awarded University of Sydney $200,000 between 2003 and 2013.
