Prevent Nuclear Terror

The Institute on Global Conflict and Cooperation at UC San Diego is a multidisciplinary team of scholars, students, staff, and interested parties both within and outside of the University of California, brought together by their common interest in studying international conflict and cooperation. IGCC researchers study a wide range of topics involving security, environmental, and economic policies that shape our ability to prevent conflict and promote cooperation across the globe. Evolving threats to global stability require exploration of nontraditional connections between and across disciplines and institutions.
