Reconciling Limitations on Non-Strategic Nuclear Weapons, Conventional Arms Control, and Missile Defense Cooperation
With NATO members in the midst of a Deterrence and Defense Posture Review—a critical strategic assessment that will help define NATO's future security strategy—a new NTI report proposes a blueprint within NATO and with Russia for moving to a new nuclear posture in Europe.
The report includes chapters authored by leading international military, academic and policy experts who have advised senior government officials in the United States, Russia and Europe. The authors present recommendations relating to key NATO nuclear policy issues, including: declaratory policy; the security of tactical nuclear weapons; nuclear sharing arrangements; reassurance; conventional arms and missile defense; cooperation with Russia; and Asia's nuclear future.
