In January we focused on the nuclear pact between the United States and Iran. In February we will open the aperture and look at nuclear proliferation and policy across the globe. Does proliferation reduce the likelihood of "first strike" use of a weapon because of the certainty of a nuclear response, or does it increase the possibility of a non-state actor gaining a weapon without fear of a response? Or both? U.S. policy has long favored minimizing the number of states with nuclear weapons. What direction is President Trump likely to take? Join us to learn more.
