Project on Managing the Atom Seminar Series


This seminar examined the prospects for further nuclear arms reductions between the United States and Russia, including the possibility that negotiations might be expanded to weapons not limited by the New START Treaty: non-deployed (reserve) strategic warheads and non-strategic (tactical) nuclear weapons. Given the offense-defense relationship, the seminar covered U.S. and Russian differences over missile defense and how those might be resolved to allow a cooperative NATO-Russia missile defense arrangement for Europe. The seminar also addressed the challenges that must be overcome to advance the nuclear arms control agenda.
