As the U.S.-Russia rivalry intensifies in the wake of Moscow’s aggression against Ukraine, the upcoming Nuclear Posture Review (NPR) becomes even more critical. Will it help lower the risk of nuclear war with Russia and other nuclear states?
Unlikely, according to a new brief by Quincy Institute Distinguished Fellow Joe Cirincione. By delaying reforms, however, America is paying a price, not just in terms of resources but also enhanced risks to national security.
The Quincy Institute presents a panel discussion on these questions with Sharon Weiner, Associate Professor at American University, Christopher Preble, co-director of the New American Engagement Initiative at the Atlantic Council, and brief author Joe Cirincione to evaluate U.S. nuclear policy, including the NPR process, in light of enhanced tensions with Russia. The panel will be moderated by Sarang Shidore, Director of Studies at the Quincy Institute.
