About Nautilus

Our mission: WE HOLD THAT IT IS POSSIBLE TO BUILD PEACE, CREATE SECURITY, AND RESTORE SUSTAINABILITY FOR ALL PEOPLE IN OUR TIME.

Since its founding in Berkeley, California in 1992, the Nautilus Institute has evolved into a thriving public policy think-tank and community resource. Along the way it has addressed critical security and sustainability issues such as the United States nuclear policy in Korea and the effect of the U.S.-China relationship on environmental insecurity. The Institute has built a reputation not only for innovative research and analysis of critical global problems, it also translates ideas into practical solutions, often with high impact.

The Institute convenes a community of scholars and practitioners who conduct research on strategies to solve interconnected global problems. Our Associates and Partners are located in Asia, North America, Europe, Australia and India. With our network of partner organizations and associates, we develop and apply these strategies to the linked threats of nuclear war, urban and energy insecurity, and climate change in the Asia Pacific region.

Nautilus encourages civil society to strengthen regional governance of these common problems and shared solutions.
