Join the Critical Issues Forum
A Global High School Conference on the Nonproliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction
The James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies (CNS) developed the Critical Issues Forum (CIF) to increase awareness of disarmament and nonproliferation issues and to engage and recruit the next generation of nonproliferation specialists. Specifically, CIF is designed to involve pre-college high school students and their teachers in issues of proliferation and control of weapons of mass destruction.
Students and teachers from around the world participate in the conference through our open education website, learning, discussing, sharing, and posting their projects online. Top performers are selected to participate in the annual student conference at one of the CNS locations–in Monterey, California, Washington, DC, or Vienna, Austria.
