- Next Step After New START: A Treaty on Tactical Nuclear Weapons?
On March 1, 2011 at 1:00 pm the Center and the Federal Legislation and Administrative Clinic are please to present Next Step After New START: A Treaty on Tactical Nuclear Weapons? The U.S. Senate's resolution approving the New START treaty calls for negotiations with Russia regarding tactical nuclear arms, and President Obama has renewed his promise to pursue discussions. However, due to the special challenges associated with extending nuclear arms control to tactical warheads and a host of complicated contextual factors - from missile defense, to NATO nuclear policy, to politics in Moscow and Washington - negotiating a treaty or other agreement will require careful thought and analysis starting now.
