Summary

The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation has awarded the Stanford Center for International Security and Cooperation (CISAC) a $2.45 million grant to support its mission to reduce the dangers of nuclear weapons. The grant will help CISAC train future nuclear security policy experts and work on projects to significantly decrease the danger of fissile materials being stolen or diverted from Russia’s nuclear complex. It will also encourage cooperation between U.S. and Chinese scientists to enhance security in Chinese military and civilian nuclear programs.

CISAC is c0-directed by Stanford Law Professor Mariano-Florentino Cuéllar.
