LCNP's stategic partnership with Global Action to Prevent War has stongly evolved since 2001. As a complemetary organization, Global Action is a program for government and grassroots efforts to stop war, genocide and other forms of deadly conflict. It aims to bring together many of the specific arms control and conflict resolution initiatives nationally and internationally in order to develop cooperation between the different efforts and to address possible gaps.

LCNP works in partnership with a number of groups on the project including the World Order Models Project (WOMP), Union of Concerned Scientists and Institute for Defense and Disarmament Studies.

LCNP's involvement in the program has included formation of working groups on the demilitarization of space and comprehensive arms restraint, and joint production with WOMP of a Draft convention on the Monitoring and reduction of Arms Transfers, Stockpiling and Production.
