Details

The United States and its allies are in a complex nuclear age, with potential adversaries modernizing their arsenals, new nuclear technologies emerging, and potential new proliferants—as well as regional challenges—raising significant concerns. Nuclear forces provide the ultimate guarantee against major war and coercion, serving both to deter the use of weapons and to support nonproliferation initiatives.

This book summarizes the findings of a Congressional Advisory Panel on the current health of the nuclear security enterprise, examines the root causes of its governance challenges, and offers recommendations to address the identified problems. Furthermore, the book addresses how the Nuclear Weapons Council (Council) carries out its statutory and regulatory responsibilities and any challenges it faces in doing so and the extent to which the Council’s actions are consistent with key practices for interagency collaboration.
