As the Global Security Institute prepares for a new season of activities to advance nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation, we would like to pause and share a few words in memory of Dr. Alan Phillips. Dr. Phillips was an outstanding citizen, physician and activist whose dedication to the abolition of nuclear weapons continues to inspire our efforts.

Over the next several weeks and months, GSI, through our family of programs, has a host of activities already underway. From collaboration with the Nobel Laureates at a historical conference in Norway to seminars for diplomats at the United Nations, GSI continues to advance a cooperative model of security for all.

It is important to note the potential serious setback in the world’s non-proliferation efforts. The approval by the Nuclear Suppliers’ Group of the US-India nuclear sharing deal makes our advocacy for the elimination of nuclear weapons all the more critical. US Congresswoman Ellen Tauscher has effectively highlighted the significance of the US-India arrangement. We direct your attention to several pertinent commentaries by our expert colleagues, including Daryl Kimball of the Arms Control Association and David Krieger, MPI Steering Committee Member and President of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation.
Jonathan Granoff is the President of the Global Security Institute, a representative to United Nations of the World Summits of Nobel Peace Laureates, a former Adjunct Professor of International Law at Widener University School of Law, and Senior Advisor to the Committee on National Security American Bar Association International Law Section.
