PONI is excited to roll out several new opportunities and resources to help the next generation nuclear community stay remotely engaged over the next few weeks. Because these initiatives will take place over Zoom, they require registration in advance. Please indicate your interest below so we can keep you updated!

PONI Book Club

PONI is facilitating weekly discussion sessions, featuring the author of the book. We’ll pick the book and encourage you to read it and join the conversation via Zoom.  Initial books include “The Return of Great Power Rivalry by Matthew Kroenig; “The Bomb” by Fred Kaplan; “The Art of Sanctions” by Richard Nephew; and many more to come. Browse our Book List and keep an eye out on our event page for upcoming Book Clubs.

Mid-Career Virtual Guest Lecture Series

Some of our brilliant mid-career cadre members have volunteered to speak on their work and research via Zoom. They represent diverse perspectives from government, academic, and operational perspectives. We will organize hour-long sessions where they present their work, followed by a question and answer period. Sign up to get on the distribution list for this initiative.

Capstone Speakers Bureau

Our annual Capstone Conference at STRATCOM has been postponed, but several of our excellent presenters have offered to present their research virtually to student groups. Instructors should reach out to us at sclaeys@csis.org if interested and we can send you their presentation topics and put you in touch.

Movie List and Watch Party

Many of you have expressed interest in organizing a community movie list. We’ll facilitate discussions on the intersection between the movie and contemporary nuclear issues. Register here if interested.

Write for the PONI Website
