The American Security Project is committed to ensuring the safety and security of our nuclear weapons, preventing proliferation of nuclear weapons and materials, and reducing the global nuclear stockpile.
Below is a collection of our work on nuclear security issues. These fact sheets, perspective papers, and reports take a fact-based approach to nuclear security issues, from Iran’s nuclear program to the future of the U.S. nuclear arsenal.
The strategic environment of the 21st century is very different from the threats we faced during the Cold War. The risk of a nuclear war between the U.S. and Russia has greatly diminished; other risks – nuclear terrorism, cyberwar, climate change – have grown.
Confronting the threats of the 21st century will require moving past political rhetoric to develop effective solutions. ASP’s nuclear security collection informs the national debate on U.S. nuclear policy by presenting strategic, nonpartisan analysis.
