Peace, Security, Political Relevance

Over 50 activist organizations, scholars, and funders were convened by the Ploughshares Fund in the face of the sobering national security environment following September 11 and the significant reduction in foundation support for nuclear nonproliferation and disarmament work. IISC designed and facilitated a collaborative planning process that involved over 650 people in developing a shared vision, strategies, and tactics to reframe peace and security issues and regain lost political relevance and effectiveness. The plan is now in the implementation phase and IISC continues to serve as the lead facilitator.
