The Partnership for Global Security (PGS) is a non-partisan think tank that provides actionable responses to 21st century security challenges. This award provides continued support for two projects aimed at achieving a secure nuclear future. The Global Nexus Initiative is a partnership between PGS and the Nuclear Energy Institute that is focused on the intersection of climate change, nuclear power, and global security. The Nuclear Governance Group (NGG) is a new iteration of its predecessor, the Nuclear Security Governance Experts Group. NGG is designed to build upon past efforts to push for policy change in collaboration with the official nuclear industry body that grew out of the Nuclear Security Summit process. These projects comprise a collaborative agenda that is designed to make tangible progress on nuclear risk reduction efforts.
2015 • 2 years, 3 months • Nuclear Challenges
The Partnership for Global Security (PGS) is a non-partisan think tank dedicated to decreasing the dangers posed by weapons of mass destruction. PGS conducts work on a two-track path to sustain momentum and continue to build partnerships to achieve a secure nuclear future. Activities under the first track drive the Nuclear Security Summit countries to accept more aggressive and necessary actions to improve the nuclear security system. The second track consolidates gains made under the Summit process and positions PGS and its partners to continue to advance the nuclear security agenda after the summit process and its inherent forcing mechanism ends. It involves collaboration with the nuclear energy industry on the connection between nuclear technology and security concerns, and work on energy and climate change.

The Partnership for Global Security (PGS) is a non-partisan think tank dedicated to decreasing the dangers posed by weapons of mass destruction. Its vision is to create the broad and integrated networks of private and public partnerships that are necessary to meet the 21st century’s global security challenges. This would be a renewal grant for PGS’s work to strengthen nuclear security governance in the lead up to the 2014 Nuclear Security Summit in the Netherlands. Funding aligns with our goal to prevent nuclear terrorism by securing fissile material. Funds would be used for partial staff salaries, travel, conferences, and publications.
