    International Peace & Security

    ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA — The Nonproliferation Policy Education Center (NPEC) is a nonpartisan educational organization founded in 1994 to promote a better understanding of strategic weapons proliferation issues. This project will challenge the current conventional wisdom regarding the risks and benefits of East Asian states increasing their reliance on civilian and military nuclear energy. It will bring together experts from a range of communities - security, nonproliferation, and energy - to determine the real opportunities and risks associated with continued wholesale government promotion of nuclear power, including closing the fuel cycle, to examine possible nuclear futures and implications. This grant fits with the Foundation's goal to prevent nuclear terrorism by promoting sound nuclear energy development policies worldwide. Funds will be used for partial staff salaries, travel, commission research, international conferences, and publication costs.
