The University of California Institute on Global Conflict and Cooperation is now recruiting participants for their next summer program on public policy and nuclear threats.
The summer workshop in residence at UC San Diego, known as the PPNT boot camp, aims to give participants the knowledge and analytic tools to contribute to the debate on future U.S. nuclear policy.
The boot camp features lectures, discussions, debates, policy simulations, and on-site visits to nuclear facilities. Participants attend talks by distinguished researchers, academics, policy officials, and operational specialists from the University of California system and other leading universities, the Los Alamos and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories, the International Atomic Energy Agency, and federal government agencies dealing with nuclear policy, threat, detection, and safeguard issues.
This program is open to both graduate students and faculty. Contact Laura Martin at UCSD for more information. You can also talk to Lily Crabtree in our group — she was a Summer 2011 participant.
The application deadline is March 15, 2013.
