Event description
How does the breakdown of established ways of managing nuclear risks poses pressing challenges for international stability?

About this Event

This timely roundtable on 'The Future of the Nuclear Order' - featuring world-renowned scholars and eminent practitioners - will examine how the breakdown of established ways of managing nuclear risks poses pressing challenges for international stability. We will discuss the particular threats posed by the situation on the Korean peninsula, and between India and Pakistan, as well as the recent collapse in arms control treaties between the United States and Russia. More generally, the panel will discuss how nuclear stability might be 'reset' in our increasingly dangerous world. All those seeking to understand how nuclear weapons will shape our future, and how a more secure future for the nuclear order could be built, should attend! Speakers include:

  • Thomas Countryman, Board Chairman of the Arms Control Association; United States Assistant Secretary of State for International Security and Nonproliferation from September 27, 2011 to January 27, 2017
  • Laura Holgate, Vice President, Materials Risk Management at the Nuclear Threat Initiative; Ambassador (ret.)
  • Vipin Narang, Associate Professor, MIT
  • T.V. Paul, James McGill Professor in Political Science, McGill University
  • Scott Sagan, S.G. Munro Professor of Political Science, Stanford University
  • Cindy Termorshuizen, Director General International Security Policy, Global Affairs Canada
  • Jennifer Welsh, Canada 150 Research Chair in Global Governance and Security at McGill University
