CITS promotes peace and prosperity through programs that focus on the protection of nuclear, chemical, and biological materials, prevention of nuclear trafficking and denuclearization, chemical security, strategic trade controls for conventional weapons and dual-use products, as well as mitigation of threats posed by trade in technologies and materials that underlie weapons of mass destruction. The Center is committed to a world free of nuclear weapons.

CITS carries out its mission by engaging and informing policymakers, industry representatives, educators, students, and the general public, both in the United States and abroad, about the dangers of trade in and theft of weapons and weapons components. The Center also engages in international colloquia and second-track negotiations with a variety of nations.

The Center puts great emphasis on mission-critical education and training programs conducted at the University of Georgia and at many other locations, worldwide. CITS prepares both undergraduate and graduate students for careers in international security and nonproliferation. We have trained government officials from over 50 nations. Our students have earned distinguished fellowships and scholarships from foundations and the most prestigious educational institutions. Many are now employed in government institutions and international organizations around the world, including the United States Department of State, the United Nations, and the International Atomic Energy Agency, among many others.
