The End of Nuclear Arms Control and Nonproliferation?

January 15 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

The End of Nuclear Arms Control and Nonproliferation?
What Scientists and Engineers Can Do to Prevent a New Nuclear Arms Race

Over the past ten to twenty years, the increasingly dangerous nuclear world, perhaps as perilous as at any period since the invention of nuclear weapons. Over this same period, there has been a widely perceived waning of the salience of nuclear weapon issues in the hierarchy of public concerns, and a related decline in public awareness about nuclear weapon dangers. Now, for the first time since the 1970s, bilateral and multilateral nuclear arms control is facing its first existential crisis; it is possible and even likely that we are entering a new era without any formal security cooperation between the United States and Russia. This talk highlights some of the current and emerging nuclear security issues and proposes elements of a research agenda for scientists and engineers that can support nuclear arms control and nonproliferation in the years ahead.
