Join the School of Public Policy for a evening event entitled, "Fighting Nuclear Proliferation with Intelligence: Three Models," which explores three popular models currently inform how intelligence should support efforts to prevent nuclear proliferation. Although highly regarded, each fails to explain key historical examples of nonproliferation failure and success. Reflecting private interviews of more than 50 officials that focused on eight nuclear proliferation cases, this presentation offers a new model and suggests several reforms.
