Nuclear Nonproliferation Policy
The mission of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Policy Division (NNPD) is to promote the peaceful use of nuclear technology while simultaneously preventing the diversion and misuse of nuclear material and technology through appropriate safeguards and security, and promotion of nuclear nonproliferation policies. To achieve this mission, the objectives of the NNPD are to: Promote policy that discourages the proliferation of nuclear technology and material to inappropriate entities. Provide information to ANS members, the technical community at large, opinion leaders, and decision makers to improve their understanding of nuclear nonproliferation issues. Become a recognized technical resource on nuclear nonproliferation, safeguards, and security issues. Serve as the integration and coordination body for nuclear nonproliferation activities for the ANS. Work cooperatively with other ANS divisions to achieve these objective nonproliferation policies.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Vienna, Austria is the world’s center for cooperation in the nuclear field committed to promoting safe, secure and peaceful uses of nuclear technology. The IAEA offers opportunities to engage current, meaningful issues of global peace, security and development while working in a multicultural environment. As the largest contributor to the IAEA, the U.S. Support Program to the IAEA (with program offices at Argonne and Brookhaven National Laboratories) encourages Americans to apply to opportunities advertised by the IAEA or assignments funded by the U.S., such as Junior Professional Officers and internships.
