LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM — The Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) is an independent London-based think tank engaged in cutting-edge defense and security research. This grant will support a project titled, "The Consequences of a Nuclear Iran" which will contribute to the understanding of specific challenges associated with growing Iranian nuclear capabilities. It will inform public and governmental debates on how to respond to the dilemmas that Iranian nuclearization could present to international and regional security, assessing policy options for minimizing the risk of conflict (including reassurance, deterrence, transparency and confidence building). Funds will be used for staff salaries, travel, conferences and honoraria.
The MacArthur Foundation awarded Royal United Services Institute for Defence and Security Studies $240,000 between 2010 and 2013.
