NSWG socializingNuclear security is one of the most pressing challenges of our time.

The Nuclear Security Working Group (NSWG) is a non-partisan group of experts working to promote discourse and build consensus on the United States’ most pressing nuclear issues.

The Nuclear Security Working Group (NSWG) exists to promote bipartisan discourse to serve the national security interest of the United States. Since 2010, the NSWG has worked behind the scenes to provide policymakers and think tanks with the expertise they need to make informed decisions on global nuclear issues. Our leadership team includes senior national security policy officials, military officers, and leading experts in the field of nuclear security.

The NSWG:

  • Is non-partisan, ensuring that the discussion of issues remains above the political fray.
  • Incorporates wide-ranging experience with leadership comprised of senior national security officials, active and retired military officials, and leading experts in the field of nuclear security.
  • Operates as a network providing a connected resource for administration officials and members of Congress.
    How we work:

The NSWG holds frequent private meetings in a not-for-attribution setting. We create a forum for the nation’s leading experts in international security and nuclear issues to share information, exchange perspectives and further ideas.

NSWG members regularly meet with senior administration officials and members of both parties on Capitol Hill. We focus on bridging the partisan divide, and contributing to the formation and implementation of a nuclear security policy that serves the national interest of the United States.

Our work is made possible by generous funding from the Carnegie Corporation of New York and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.
