000 1. The United States Air Force’s Institute for National Security Studies (INSS), in partnership with PASCC, invites white papers and proposals (if requested) for studies in many broad areas related to countering the threat posed by weapons of mass destruction (WMD).

The Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) has requested that USAF INSS/PASCC issue a call for papers soliciting white papers outlining studies or strategic dialogues (also referred to as Track 2 dialogues).

WMD are defined as chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear weapons.

With this Fiscal Year 2019 (FY19) call for papers, USAF INSS announces to academia, research institutions, and non-profit organizations it is soliciting white paper for studies and strategic dialogues that will help enable the DoD and the USG to ensure nuclear deterrence and to prepare for and combat WMD and improvised threats.

The white papers should propose rigorous, innovative projects that:
1. Facilitate critical engagement between U. S. and foreign subject-matter experts (SMEs) on key WMD, CWMD, or nuclear deterrence issues; 2. Address current and emerging challenges facing CCMDs and DoD; or 3. Expand knowledge or develop new concepts relevant to the national security missions and requirements of DoD and the Armed Services.
