About Us

Our Mission

The International Disarmament Institute, housed with the Political Science Department, challenges you to develop a deeper understanding of global issues and diverse national and international cultures. The Institute encourages fresh perspectives on humanitarian and human rights policies, working through challenges posed by weapons of mass destruction, conventional arms, and methods of armed violence that yield indiscriminate or disproportionate impacts.
