    COPENHAGEN, DENMARK — The Danish Institute for International Studies (DIIS) is an independent research institution for international studies, financed primarily by the Danish state. This grant would support its project titled "Governing the Front End of the Nuclear Fuel Cycle: From Uranium Mining to Non-proliferation and Arms Control." This project seeks to map the uranium market from mining to use in reactors and weapons. MacArthur funds would be used for partial staff salaries, travel for field research and presentations, publications, and research materials. This grant fits into IPS's strategy to prevent nuclear proliferation and terrorism.

The MacArthur Foundation awarded Danish Institute for International Studies $600,000 between 2003 and 2014.
