More than 100 non-governmental organizations and a variety of industry and consulting contractors have web sites featuring organizational descriptions and biographies, as well as publications. Some of the better sites include extensive links as well as Internet resources. This section profiles the primary academic organizations, think tanks, advocacy groups, foundations and philanthropic funders, nuclear weapons contractors, scientific societies, and associations who regularly work on nuclear weapons issues. Major non-governmental commissions and reports dealing with nuclear weapons and arms control and disarmament policy are referred to in the Arms Control section under Chapter Six: Issues (below).
The non-profit ACCESS Clearinghouse maintains an extensive database of more than 2,400 organizations and individual experts in over 100 countries working in the broad fields of foreign policy, peace, and security. Their database can be accessed at http://mr900i.bso.com/~access/Welcome.html.
