On Oct. 31, the Brookings Arms Control and Non-Proliferation Initiative will host a discussion on nuclear arms control choices for the next administration. Following the discussion, the speakers will take questions from the audience.

Nuclear arms control has been a feature on the U.S.-Soviet/Russian agenda for nearly five decades. While discussions between Washington and Moscow currently are at a standstill, the limitations, transparency and predictability provided by agreements such as the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty are more important than ever in times of tense bilateral relations. The next U.S. president and her or his administration will face a number of choices about nuclear weapons, nuclear policy and arms control.

Copies of the new Brookings Arms Control and Non-Proliferation series paper, “Nuclear Arms Control Choices for the Next Administration,” will be available.
