Great Decisions Discussion Group: Nuclear Negotiations: Back to the Future?

Wednesday, March 20, 2019
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Radmacher Meeting Room

This group meets monthly to discuss a topic of current affairs. In March, we focus on the current status of nuclear negotiations.

Nuclear weapons have not gone away. The Trump administration has brought a new urgency, if not a new approach, to dealing with them. The President has met with Vladimir Putin as the New Start Treaty with Russia comes up for renewal in 2021. At the first ever presidential summit with Kim Jong-un, denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula was discussed. President Trump has also decertified the Obama nuclear deal with Iran. To what degree should past nuclear talks guide future U.S. nuclear arms control negotiations? Can the art of the deal apply to stabilizing our nuclear future?
