The Committee on International Security and Arms Control (CISAC) was established in 1980 as a standing committee of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) to bring together leading scholars in science, technology, and medicine with military, diplomatic, and policy experts initially to address critical problems of international security, particularly issues concerning nuclear weapons, and subsequently to address additional issues including biosecurity, cybersecurity, space security, and terrorism. CISAC engages influential counterparts through its formal dialogues in Russia, China, and India, and through projects and less formal interactions with key organizations in other countries. All of CISAC’s work through the dialogues and the projects is based on technical security issues and is intended to lead to policy insights and options. The NAS-Russian Academy of Sciences’ (RAS) CISAC dialogue has operated continuously for over 35 years for the promotion of understanding between our nations. The remarks in the meetings are not for personal attribution. NAS CISAC participants provide direct briefings on the dialogues to government officials and bring what they learn from CISAC’s dialogues into a variety of forums, including the Academy, advisory committees, other dialogues, and collaborations with other experts working on international security issues in the United States and Russia. CISAC’s dialogues also lay the foundations for or enhance other activities with public products, such as NAS studies, joint NAS-RAS studies, and other projects.
