"Nuclear weapons are unworthy of civilization."

Senator Alan Cranston, Founder, Global Security Institute

The Global Security Institute is a network of high powered individuals who have been quietly moving the dial on the issue of nuclear weapons for the last decades.

The institute is dedicated to strengthening international security based on co-operation and respect for the rule of law. Our focus is on nuclear arms control, non-proliferation and disarmament. Our team includes former heads of state, distinguished diplomats and politicians, committed celebrities, religious leaders, Nobel Peace Laureates, disarmament and legal experts, and concerned citizens.

We are united by a common purpose — to create a world free of nuclear weapons.
