IGCC builds bridges between the theory and practice of international policy. It brings fresh ideas to the process by establishing the intellectual foundations for effective policy-making, and provides ways for UC faculty and students to interact with policymakers at home and abroad through collaborative, multi-campus projects. IGCC serves as a channel for the labs to access the social science expertise of the campuses and provides opportunities for UC faculty to present policy-related research through its office at the UC Washington Center. Faculty and students conducting cutting-edge research on nuclear nonproliferation, terrorism, regional security, international security institutions, climate change and security, international health risks, cyberthreats, and other topics related to national security are supported through a faculty-reviewed competitive grant process and brought together to learn from and share their expertise with their peers both from the campuses and the labs.
