Nuclear Scholars Initiative
October 17, 2012
The 2012 Nuclear Scholars Initiative featured an outstanding class of 21 graduate students and young professionals from across the United States, as well as one from the United Kingdom. Together, they participated in six monthly workshops that covered various aspects of U.S. nuclear weapons policy. Sessions focused on the Nuclear Posture Reviews, deterrence and stability, nuclear modernization and arms control, nonproliferation and nuclear security, and nuclear targeting. The program culminated in a final meeting, at which the scholars presented their own research, the results of which are contained in this year’s volume.
