Monday March 6th: 11:00 am - 12:15 pm (Zoom event)

Arms Control: Crisis, Challenges and Opportunities

Dr Nina Tannenwald - Department of Political Science, Brown University

 

Summary of Talk: Today, we are on the verge of a world without nuclear restraint. In the absence of formal arms control, how do we proceed? What broad principles and norms would we want? What measures might nuclear-armed states take, even without formal agreement, that would reduce the risk of nuclear war and control the arms race? Dr. Tannenwald  suggests that nuclear-armed states move toward a global regime of nuclear restraint and responsibility. Restraint would primarily take the form of reciprocal commitments and unilateral measures to avoid an arms race and reduce nuclear dangers. Responsibility refers to the fact that nuclear-armed states must pursue limited forms of deterrence and are accountable to the international community.

Brief Biography: Dr Nina Tannenwald’s research focuses on the role of international institutions, norms and ideas in global security issues, efforts to control weapons of mass destruction, and human rights and the laws of war. Her book, The Nuclear Taboo: The United States and the Nonuse of Nuclear Weapons Since 1945(Cambridge University Press) won the 2009 Lepgold Prize for the best book in international relations.
