What can the U.S. do to thwart the nuclear ambitions of its allies? Looking to the past, the U.S. was able to leverage its alliance commitments to stop some friendly states from going nuclear. Looking to the future, Iran's possible nuclear acquisition and China’s military ascendancy may tempt key U.S. allies in the Middle East and East Asia to consider reducing their reliance on American security guarantees by acquiring independent nuclear deterrents. When planning a response to the nuclear pursuit by these friends, the U.S. can draw lessons from the successes and failures of its nonproliferation efforts against its Cold War-era allies. This Project on Managing the Atom seminar will be led by Eugene Kogan, Stanton Nuclear Security Postdoctoral Fellow, International Security Program/Project on Managing the Atom.
