It aims to influence national laws, seeking to accomplish its mission by focusing on nuclear arms control, non-proliferation, and disarmament.

The current leadership of the Institute is as follows:


The Institute currently consists of four well-defined programs:

  • Bipartisan Security Group [1] – constituencies include members of the United States Congress and their staff
