Ploughshares Fund is a global security foundation that works to reduce nuclear arsenals and prevent their spread. N Square, an initiative of the Ploughshares Fund (PF), was established in 2013 with MacArthur support, along with the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Hewlett Foundation, and Skoll Global Threats Fund. N Square aims to spur creativity in, and reinvigorate debate about, nuclear issues. This award allows N Square to expand its operations and implement some of the most promising ideas that emerged from its pilot phase. It focuses on building a multidisciplinary network of influencers to seed innovative ideas for the field, and generate new interest in nuclear issues among the concerned public.
