Media Workshops on Nuclear Weapons, Doctrines and WMD Terrorism

The Institute organizes media workshops for raising the level of understanding and reporting on WMD issues among the media. This project is supported by the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI).

The first workshop was organized in October 2008. Journalists from print and electronic media in India representing the national and regional media were invited for this workshop.
