Recent adjustments to the nuclear doctrines of the Russian Federation and the United States demonstrate the urgent need for a renewed dialogue between the two countries on managing their vast nuclear weapons capabilities and potential. Is there room left for constructive initiatives that will reestablish cooperation in nuclear risk reduction between the United States and Russia? Can strategic stability be rebuilt on new terms?
The Working Group on the Future of U.S.-Russia Relations, a bilateral collective of rising experts from American and Russian institutions, announces the publication of its ninth joint report: “Nuclear Arms Control and U.S.-Russia Relations.” Coauthored by Sarah Hummel (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) and Andrey Baklitskiy (PIR Center, Moscow), the paper addresses questions that are vital for world peace and security at a time of tense U.S.-Russia relations.
