The Belfer Center's Project on Managing the Atom (MTA) conducts and disseminates policy-relevant research on nuclear weapons, energy, non-proliferation and disarmament. "Innovation in Nonproliferation Policy: Finding and Filling the Gaps," a two-year project, will address issues of shutting down illicit trade in nuclear technology, procedures and protection for proliferation whistleblowers, blocking unconventional proliferation, and strengthening nonproliferation cooperation with China. These activities will result in new ideas for addressing gaps in nonproliferation policies of the United States, international organizations and governments around the world. The grant will be used for salaries, workshops and meetings, honoraria, staff travel, publication, and office expenses.
