Established in 1971, the ACA's website says, it is dedicated to providing authoritative information and promoting practical solutions to address the dangers posed by the world's most dangerous weapons: nuclear, biological, and chemical, as well as certain types of conventional arms.
Every year since 2007, Arms Control Association's staff has nominated several individuals and institutions that best exemplify leadership and action in pursuing effective arms control solutions and each, in their own way, has provided leadership to help reduce weapons-related security threats.
As for this year, the American institute named “members of the technical and political negotiating teams of Iran and the Group 5+1 ( the United States, Russia, the UK, France, and China plus Germany) for making significant progress toward developing long-term solutions to Iran's nuclear fuel cycle activities, facilities, and uranium stockpiles as part of a future, comprehensive nuclear agreement”.
The website of the Arms Control Association invited its users to cast their votes (one per person) for the 2014 Arms Control Person(s) of the Year until midnight January 7. The results will be announced on January 9.
