“Nuclear weapons are unworthy of civilization.”

Senator Alan Cranston, Founder, Global Security Institute

The Global Security Institute is dedicated to strengthening international peace and security based on co-operation, diplomacy, shared interests, the rule of law and universal values.

Our efforts are guided by the skills and commitment of our team of former heads of state, distinguished diplomats and politicians, celebrities, religious leaders, Nobel Peace Laureates, disarmament and legal experts, and concerned informed citizens.

Our focus is on controlling and eliminating humanity’s greatest threat – nuclear weapons.
