Nuclear Policy and Presidential Power
Seattle, WA, USA
Instructions on how to join this virtual meeting will be sent the day before the program.
Under President Trump, there has been a noticeable shift in attitudes towards nuclear weapons. For decades, U.S. presidents from both parties undertook significant arms control with President Obama announcing the aim to seek “the peace and security of a world without nuclear weapons.” Trump has exhibited a different approach. In addition to abandoning existing arms control agreements, he is seeking to restore nuclear weapons to a central role in American military strategy—an expensive proposition. How else has nuclear policy changed under the Trump administration? What is the future of nuclear weapons, and how will the outcome of the 2020 election shape it? Join the World Affairs Council, former secretary of defense William J. Perry, and Tom Collina of the Ploughshares Fund, to discuss the future of nuclear policy and the upcoming election.
