IPCS Review: NTI Nuclear Materials Security Index
Tanvi Kulkarni et al

As part of its research agenda, IPCS reviews significant academic contributions like books, reports and articles. The researchers are encouraged to critically review and respond to academic and research interventions at the regional and international levels. In the past, the researchers at the Institute have reviewed the reports of Transparency International, International Crisis Group and other academic institutions.

The researchers at the Nuclear Security Programme (NSP) have undertaken a peer review of the Nuclear Threat Initiative's (NTI) Nuclear Materials Security Index which was published in January 2012. The NSP at the IPCS seeks to respond to the twin challenges of nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation through the provision of independent, objective assessments, and by supplementing existing policy debates and strategic analyses. The NSP’s work manifests in research projects, track-II dialogues, capacity-building for young scholars, and conferences, seminars and panel discussions to nurture the evolution of an informed strategic community.

Tanvi Kulkarni, Abhijit Iyer-Mitra, Ruhee Neog, Alankrita Sinha are Research Officers at the Institute of Peace and Conflict Studies (IPCS).
