Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

In 2019, the Arms Control Association's goals include continued engagement with policymakers and journalists and in-depth research and analysis to reduce the risk from nuclear weapons, with an emphasis on maintaining constructive U.S.-Russian nuclear relations, smarter diplomatic engagement with North Korea, and to build-on the highly effective 2015 Iran nuclear deal.

The Arms Control Association's research and analysis, media engagement, and monthly journal provides policymakers, journalists, and the interested public with authoritative analyses on arms control proposals and agreements. Through leadership in U.S. and international working groups, the Association engages and influences high-level officials and helps coordinate domestic and international efforts to reduce the risk of nuclear weapons challenges.

The Arms Control Association's staff experts inform national and international media outlets weekly on a range of nonproliferation and disarmament-related topics. Arms Control Today, the Association's monthly journal, features in-depth articles and commentaries by leading experts in the field and former officials. Association experts also regularly engage with congressional staff on the organization's policy goals and work closely with other NGOs on shared priorities.

Throughout the course of 2019, national and global arms control and nonproliferation systems have faced serious challenges and an uphill battle lies ahead. Foundational agreements and policies are in jeopardy, across nearly all of the Association's issue areas, including the grave impasse in U.S.-Russian relations and arms control agreements, the unraveling of the Iran nuclear deal, the march forward to implement costly and dangerous plans to recapitalize the U.S. nuclear arsenal, and stymied attempts at denuclearization diplomacy with North Korea.

The Arms Control Association has continually confronted these challenges by taking advantage of the most critical opportunities where our organization is uniquely positioned to help move the needle. The Arms Control Association has doubled down on bipartisan congressional outreach and media engagement to steer the debate toward sensible policy solutions and generate a broad base of support for key arms control solutions. At the same time, the Association has focused on holding the U.S. administration accountable and responds with clear analysis in a volatile political and policy environment. The Arms Control Association receives more than 500 media hits on an annual basis and publishes op-eds in mainstream outlets and journals read by our target audiences.

Additionally, Association staff have worked tirelessly to keep New START extension on the radar screens of policymakers by launching a new joint project with five partner organizations. This project has succeeded in generating bipartisan calls to extend the agreement.

The Arms Control Association has also continued to serve as a key convener of international experts and formal officials as the lead U.S. partner of the Deep Cuts Commission. In partnership with the Commission, the Arms Control Association works to promote dialogue and identify viable solutions to overcome the impasse on U.S.-Russian arms control.
