Brookings Mountain West Lecture
"Nuclear Arms Control: Challenges and Opportunities in 2013"
Steven Pifer, Senior Fellow, Foreign Policy and Director of the Brookings Arms Control Initiative
U.S. nuclear arms control policy must address numerous factors, including our strategic relationships with Russia and China, the potential for future nuclear weapons reductions--including non-strategic nuclear weapons, and the offense-defense relationship, given concerns that missile defense developments could in the future affect the nuclear balance. Washington DC must also consider its obligations under the Non-Proliferation Treaty, how to dissuade new countries from joining the nuclear weapons ranks, and what to do about the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty, which the United States has signed but not ratified. This presentation will explore challenges and opportunities facing Washington DC in the aftermath of the Cold War and following the 2012 presidential elections in Russia and the United States.
