Earlier this month, the Pentagon released its Nuclear Posture Review (NPR), which described an increasingly challenging international security environment and a need for the United States to strengthen its nuclear posture to deter strategic attacks on itself and its allies. This conversation will explore the US nuclear posture; assess the costs and benefits of changes to US nuclear policy under the Trump Administration; and analyze how America’s nuclear weapons contribute to its broader national security goals. The event will also feature the launch of Dr. Kroenig’s new book titled “The Logic of American Nuclear Strategy.”
