A grant to the Hoover Institution at Stanford University (Stanford, CA) would provide ongoing support to former Secretary of State George Shultz's Toward a World Free of Nuclear Weapons Project.Secretary Shultz has been the instigator and inspiration for the now worldwide interest in reestablishing the vision of and taking steps toward significant reductions in global nuclear arsenals and ultimately their elimination. In the coming year, Secretary Shultz, renowned physicist Sidney Drell, and Ambassador James Goodby will continue to provide the credibility and nonpartisan stamp to this effort that the Obama administration continues to need in order to ratify treaties and retain international support and confidence. The Hoover Institution is likely to play a particularly important role in negotiations with Senators Lugar and McCain regarding the Test Ban and with the Kremlin in negotiations on further reductions beyond those likely to be agreed upon in the upcoming treaty between the U.S. and Russia. (Renewal, $175,000/1; 47% of project budget)
