Type of SupportProject
The Preventive Defense Project at Stanford University's Center for International Security and Cooperation plans to conduct a cost-benefit analysis of the choice faced by the United States in the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty. Co-Project Directors Siegfried Hecker and Bill Perry, former head of Los Alamos National Lab and former Secretary of Defense, respectively, will conduct both a scientific and a social scientific review of the value to the U.S. of ratifying the treaty as well the costs of doing so. We hope that this effort will help policymakers and the public to make a fair and considered decision regarding the CTBT when it comes up for ratification in the U.S. and that, down the road, it will also help other countries to make similarly well-considered and evidence-based decisions.
