In a tech-savvy world, open source technology could open the door to new methods of verification. It could empower civil society to assist in strengthening the nonproliferation verification regime and increase global public awareness and understanding of the relevance of nuclear proliferation in everyday life. In situations where there is public access or major public policy concern, social media can reinforce nonproliferation, arms control agreements, and norms. By addressing the opportunities and limitations for enhancing international security, the project will develop a new media _roadmap_ for nuclear nonproliferation experts and policymakers to better understand the potential of applying such a rapidly evolving, powerful medium to the issues of nuclear security.
