Hudson Institute's Center for Political-Military Analysis and the Partnership for a Secure America held:
The Nuclear Posture Review: Challenges and Considerations
Monday, April 19, 2010, 3:00-5:00 PM
The Obama administration recently released its first Nuclear Posture Review (NPR), a comprehensive assessment of U.S. nuclear forces and doctrine. The document synthesized the administration's goals related to nuclear arms control, nonproliferation, and revitalizing the U.S. nuclear infrastructure.
Hudson Institute and the Partnership for a Secure America held a bipartisan panel of former officials that assessed the new NPR and answered questions about its implications for U.S. security. How will the NPR affect the challenges of Iran and North Korea to the global nuclear nonproliferation regime? What does it tell us about the future of ballistic missile defense and the direction of U.S.-Russian arms control? What implications will Congress and foreign governments draw from the NPR as they look for indications of future U.S. nuclear policies?
