We will discuss Dr. Susan Colbourn's paper "The Short-Lived Struggle to Modernize NATO’s Short-Range Nuclear Forces".
According to the 2017 US National Security Strategy, Moscow and Washington are engaged in a “great powers competition”. At the same time, Russian and American nuclear arsenals combined still represent more than 90% of world’s total. With this in mind the parties should be interested in managing the competition in the safest possible way. However, the arms control architecture, which previously provided a safety net, is falling apart. In order to maintain the relative stability, the parties will have to consider the issues and possible trade-offs, which will be on the negotiation table when or if Moscow and Washington once again decide to pursue arms control, and evaluate possible alternatives like more flexible political agreements.
