The James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies (CNS) "strives to combat the spread of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) by training the next generation of nonproliferation specialists and disseminating timely information and analysis. CNS at the Monterey Institute of International Studies is the largest nongovernmental organization in the United States devoted exclusively to research and training on nonproliferation issues.

"Dr. William Potter established the Center in 1989 with a handful of Institute students. Today, CNS has a full-time staff of more than 40 specialists and over 50 graduate student research assistants located in offices in Monterey, Washington, DC, and Almaty, Kazakhstan. CNS is organized into five research programs: the Chemical and Biological Weapons Nonproliferation Program, the East Asia Nonproliferation Program, the International Organization and Nonproliferation Program, the Newly Independent States Nonproliferation Program, and the WMD Terrorism Research Program."
