The Project on Managing the Atom is excited to announce the launch of a research network, funded by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, focused on engaging with and re-examining the role of nuclear deterrence. The deterrence network will bring together geographically and intellectually diverse people and organizations to examine one of the most critical security issues facing the world.
To kick off the event, we will introduce foundational ideas and key actors to the start of the network. We will also feature a keynote from Dr. John P.
