A Track II Dialogue on Limiting Non-Strategic Nuclear Weapons
Center on Contemporary Conflict
MetadataShow full item record
There is great uncertainty about the numbers and locations of Russian non-strategic nuclear weapons (NSNW). This project will establish a Track II dialogue between Russian and American experts that provides a basis for understanding the specific challenges to negotiations to reduce these weapons. In light of Russia’s actions in Crimea, Track II discussions will focus on how the crisis might affect thinking about NSNW as well as the political and technical factors that could influence efforts towards transparency. While PASCC has supported other U.S.-Russia strategic dialogues, none are specific to NSNW and yet NSNW are a key area of nuclear-weapon disagreement and are directly related to another area of significant disagreement, missile defense. Discussions will illuminate whether a narrower scope for reductions and applicable verification might be possible, feasible, and/or desirable.
