PGS provides actionable responses to 21st century transnational security challenges using international and public-private partnerships to assess policy needs, identify effective strategies, and drive demonstrable results. PGS is constantly evaluating how the convergence of security, technology, and economic issues influence global nuclear challenges in the 21st century. Its current research initiatives include a focus on the intersection of nuclear power, climate change, and global security, and effective nuclear governance in existing and newcomer nations.
With more than 15 years of experience, PGS’ focus on strategic thinking and deep understanding of how to shape, write, and package timely, authoritative, and actionable policy proposals for busy policymakers has led to new international security programs and millions in funding for nuclear security. PGS has a unique perspective on the nuclear security challenge and a track record of creating broad and integrated networks and public-private partnerships to address transnational issues.
PGS was originally incorporated as the Russian-American Nuclear Security Advisory Council (RANSAC) in 1997. At that time, the organization worked with the U.S. government and those in Russia and the former Soviet states to ensure the elimination of Soviet nuclear and biological stockpiles and to peacefully reemploy their weapons scientists. Since that time, the organization has broadened its focus to address critical emerging global security challenges.
PGS is a non-partisan 501(c)3 organization working to lead the world to a safer future.
