Nuclear Policy Project FLASH Updates

The Nuclear Policy Project was a multi-faceted examination of the role of nuclear weapons and deterrence in global security, aimed at assessing the prospects for meaningfully reducing reliance on policies threatening the use of nuclear weapons. The project published the weekly Nuclear Policy Project FLASH (archive below) and other analyses and background papers.

Following the terrorist attacks on 11 September, 2001, the Nuclear Policy Project was concluded in order to focus staff resources on the Policy Forum.

This page contains the archive of NPP Flash Updates and Non-Nuclear NATO FLASH Updates. For more information on the project itself, see the Nuclear Policy Project page.
