Research/Lobby/Activist/Action Organizations The Federation of American Scientists. A high quality arms control organization, with information and links on all sorts of Weapons of Mass Destruction issues. The Center for Nonproliferation Studies at the Monterey Institute for International Studies has some good information on proliferation issues, and a superb list of links to other proliferation and security-related sites (including a top-ten list of proliferation sites). The Lester B. Pearson Canadian International Peacekeeping Training Centre. Lots of information and links on peacekeeping. The Stimson Center, whose motto is "pragmatic steps toward ideal objectives."
