SSP Wednesday Seminar

Lori Murray (Council on Foreign Relations)

Nuclear Threats are on the rise, as regional state actors proliferate, non-state actors continue to threaten the use of these weapons and great powers modernize with rapidly advancing technologies and destabilizing nuclear policies that could potentially undermine strategic stability. These challenges are among those contributing to the break-down and potential collapse of the global order that sought to control the growth and spread of these weapons. How dangerous are these threats? Is the global arms control and non-proliferation regimes about to collapse? What is the role of the United States in determining that future? These are among the central questions that will be addressed in this seminar.
