The return of nuclear weapons to the centre of international security affairs has highlighted a lack of expertise, both inside and outside government, on nuclear policy. Our work at RUSI aims to fill that gap.
We convene dialogues, host public and private events, and deliver briefings on nuclear policy to broaden understanding of nuclear issues among politicians, officials, journalists and the public. We use our long-standing specialism in the nuclear field to help rebuild 'nuclear IQ', and to connect next-generation professionals with established experts.
The UK Project on Nuclear Issues (UK PONI) is a cross-generational network of over 1,600 registered members which encourages young scholars and professionals to engage with established experts on contemporary nuclear issues.
