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.
We work behind the scenes to provide policymakers and NGOs with the expertise they need to make informed decisions on global nuclear issues.
Our leadership team includes senior foreign policy experts, military officials, and leading scholars in the field of nuclear security.
