A grant to the Center for Economic and Foreign Policy Studies would allow the Center to continue to generate strategic thinking and elite debate about Turkey’s role in the global discussion of nuclear energy and nuclear policy. The only such project operating in Turkey, the Center could significantly influence the country’s debate on nuclear security as its government considers acquiring nuclear power capabilities. The project would build on the organization’s pioneering work over the past two years by continuing to keep the Turkish government informed about nuclear security and energy issues. This is especially important given the ripple effects of Turkey’s policies across the increasingly unstable region.

Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support  
Hewlett has long recognized the Ploughshares Fund as a strategic partner in advancing nuclear security, particularly when it comes to working with opinion leaders in Washington. This renewal would allow Ploughshares to continue work toward its ultimate goal of achieving a safe, secure, nuclear weapon-free world. In the coming years, Ploughshares will focus on (1) using public and policymaker education to ensure that the administration and Congress understand the potential benefits of reduced spending on nuclear weapons and (2) generating and promoting ideas for diplomatic means to keep Iran from becoming a nuclear-armed country.
for general operating support  
Ploughshares Fund’s purpose is to help achieve a safe, secure, world free from the threat of nuclear weapons. A renewal of general operating support will enable Ploughshares Fund to continue successful efforts to reduce the U.S. nuclear weapons budget and prevent the spread of nuclear weapons by promoting a diplomatic solution to the impasse with Iran; pursue deeper civil society involvement with nuclear issues in South Asia; and add new staff for a major drive to gain funding from new donors for the organization and the broader field.
