Safety & Security

Safety & Security

Originally, SAGA Foundation was founded to explore ways to measure the public's understanding and concern regarding the dangers of unsecured highly enriched uranium leftover from the days of the cold war.  We remain dedicated to this mission and have since expanded our interests to support a variety of solutions for making the world safer and more secure.

IN ACTION The Stimson Center & Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars

SAGA embarked on an ambitious collaborative project involving two of Washington’s most respected Think Tanks. The Stimson Center and the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. In the long shadow of the cold war, experts recognize that there is still so much more work that needs to be to make the world safer and more secure. We challenged these two organizations to find positive common ground with their Russian counterparts to build on past accomplishments in the area of space and science and work toward the realization that only through collaboration can we share in a safer future for all the people of the planet. 


The Stimson Center

The Stimson Center promotes international security, shared prosperity & justice through applied research and independent analysis, deep engagement, and policy innovation.

Woodrow Wilson International Center

The Wilson Center is the nation’s key non-partisan policy forum for tackling global issues through independent research and open dialogue to inform actionable ideas for the policy community.

Collaboration Outcome

The Stimson Center and the Wilson Center’s Kennan Institute have convened an international Working Group of scientists and policy experts from the United States and Russian Federation to explore the status of U.S.-Russian science collaboration, focusing on epidemiology and public health. The working group consists of noted representatives from the medical and academic communities of the United States and Russia, in light of the vital importance of these fields during the COVID-19 pandemic.
