Russia’s brutal war against Ukraine comes at a time when every state possessing nuclear weapons is modernizing or plans to modernize its nuclear forces. One by one, arms control treaties have been discarded. Essential norms, including the norm against waging aggressive war as well as humanitarian laws of warfare have been disregarded. We live in a deeply disheartening time. But opportunities exist in in every crisis. Let’s discuss this war, how something truly awful might to turned into something good, and steps we might take to change course.
Michael Krepon is co-founder of the Stimson Center and the author of Winning and Losing the Nuclear Peace: The Rise, Demise, and Revival of Arms Control, a much-needed contemporary analysis of the role arms control played in "winning" the nuclear peace. It could hardly come at a more important time. Join Mr. Krepon and Student Pugwash USA for an interactive and engaging discussion, and hear what hope might still remain to rebuild the nuclear peace.
Video for the event is available here for a limited time. This talk is co-sponsored by the Arizona State University School for the Future of Innovation in Society, the Stimson Center, International Student/Young Pugwash, the Scoville Peace Fellowship, the Trebuchet, and the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, and is made possible by the members of Student Pugwash USA.
