Public Policy and Nuclear Threats

The summer workshop-in-residence at UC San Diego, known as the Public Policy and Nuclear Threats (PPNT) Boot Camp, gives participants the knowledge and analytic tools they need to contribute to the debate on future U.S. nuclear policy. The boot camp features lectures, discussions, debates, and policy simulations. Participants attend talks by distinguished researchers, academics, policy officials, and operational specialists from leading universities, the National Laboratories, international organizations, and government agencies, on topics ranging from current nuclear threats, international safeguards, and nonproliferation strategies. The course is part of long-standing IGCC work on nuclear policy issues. Support for this program is provided by the Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration and The Stanton Foundation.
