With President Putin at the helm, the Russian Federation poses great challenges for nuclear weapons issues. The fluctuating atmosphere of the 21st century, however, also creates a new opportunity to address the problems and legacy of the 20th century cold war. The possibility and likelihood of abrupt changes in Russian foreign policy could create an environment more amenable to cooperation with the United States, and avenues for future partnership must be strengthened. As official channels on U.S. goals to reduce nuclear weapons have reached dead ends, the Track II dialogue is able to raise issues not discussed in formal negotiations. The workshop intends to produce a set of recommendations for the Russian and U.S. governments in a world with fewer strategic weapons and more defensive systems. The core focus is how to enhance regional stability while reducing the threats of cyber security, space governance, and WMD.
