The Money Behind Nuclear Ideas

The nine nuclear weapon states spend enormous resources on nuclear weapons. Nuclear weapon producers and governments that support deterrence, spend millions on think tanks that cultivate analysis and research on nuclear policies. What is this money really buying? What are the mechanisms behind nuclear policies?

In this session we will learn more about the money behind nuclear weapons, research on funding think tanks, and the implications it has for honest conversations about weapons of mass destruction.
