Nuclear Disarmament Will Require Shared Responsibilities, Say Authors of New Carnegie Corporation-Funded Papers

Grantees in this story

Achieving the goal of a world free of nuclear weapons will require the increased engagement of nations that currently do not possess nuclear arms of their own, according to the authors of “Shared Responsibilities for Nuclear Disarmament: A Global Debate” a new collection from the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, a Carnegie Corporation grantee. We must move beyond the traditional cycle of complaints from the "have-nots" and retorts from the "haves" to suggest new ways to realize the shared goal of nuclear disarmament.

The volume is part of the Academy's Global Nuclear Future Initiative, a project that brings together research groups focused on the nuclear industry, the future fuel cycle, the protection of nuclear materials, and the emergence of a new international nuclear regulatory regime. Stanford University political scientist and nonproliferation specialist Scott Sagan and Steven E. Miller co-direct the Initiative. Read the articles appearing in the double issue of Daedalus.

The project is principally supported by Carnegie Corporation of New York, the William and Flora Hewlett, Alfred P. Sloan, and Kavli Foundations.
