International Organizations & Nonproliferation Program (IONP)
Training the next generation of policy experts, and promoting substantive dialogue between policy makers and think tank experts on nonproliferation, disarmament and arms control.
Updated: Feb 22, 2013
The IONP internship program provides graduate students from the Monterey Institute of International Studies (MIIS) with nonproliferation expertise via positions as staff members at nonproliferation IOs for periods of four to six months.

Since that time, it has expanded significantly: IONP assists students to acquire internships in nine international organizations. For more, please see the IONP Internships page.

CNS also allows students who participate in the annual "NPT Negotiation Simulation" course at the Monterey Institute to attend international conferences and participate as NGO observers.
