The Council on Strategic Risks’ nuclear weapons policy work seeks to analyse and address the development, diffusion, and use of strategic weapons.
The Council on Strategic Risks (CSR) is dedicated to anticipating, analysing, and addressing core systemic risks to security in the 21st century, with special examination of the ways in which these risks intersect and exacerbate one another.
CSR hosts three institutes:
Part of CSR’s founding purpose was to draw on experiences in creating and driving effective approaches to addressing complex and potentially catastrophic global risks. Its activities include analytical work, hosting Track 1.5 dialogues between government and non-governmental experts, convening key stakeholders to develop bold new policy ideas and collaborate in their implementation, and running multiple fellowships to mentor and assist emerging leaders.
The Council on Strategic Risks has shaped nuclear risk reduction efforts by influencing strategic and policy decisions, and by holding private dialogues among key stakeholders. Accomplishments in this area include getting US policy to include seeking arms control discussions with China, and successfully urging the Pentagon to end plans to develop a new nuclear sea-launched cruise missile — a weapon which heightens risks of nuclear weapons use.
CSR was founded in 2017 by Francesco Femia and Caitlin Werrell under an esteemed Board of Directors with deep experience in global security risks. It is based in Washington, DC and is a 501(c)(3) nonpartisan, nonprofit organisation.
