Public Policy and Nuclear Threats Bootcamp 2016

Posted by:

The NSSC and the UC Institute on Global Conflict and Cooperation (IGCC) have partnered together since 2011 to hold the Public Policy and Nuclear Threats Bootcamp (PPNT). This summer’s cohort was comprised of 26 students and professionals from around the world, including participants from South Korea, Pakistan, and Iran.

The PPNT program is designed to cover important issues in U.S. nuclear strategy and policy, supported by an understanding of the scientific and historical foundations of this policy. The two week program featured speakers from an array of backgrounds including Nonproliferation History, Nuclear Forensics, International Safeguards, and US Nuclear Command and Control. Participants had opportunity to engage with these speakers, network with one another, and even tour a nuclear submarine.
