    International Peace & Security

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Foreign Policy Institute (FPI) of The Johns Hopkins University's Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) was established in 1980 to unite scholarship and policy in the search for realistic answers to international issues facing the United States and the world. This grant supports policy research and diplomatic engagement to explore the intersection of disarmament and nuclear security in advance of two major nuclear meetings – the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) Review Conference and the 2016 Nuclear Security Summit. The project elucidates the connection between the two concepts, identifies actions (and the drivers motivating them) that are counterproductive to each policy agenda, and suggests practical policy recommendations to advance both.
