Title: Nuclear proliferation : can it be capped?
Moderator: Krogh, Peter F. (Peter Frederic)
Person Interviewed: Blechman, Barry M.; Davis, Lynn E.
Abstract: Examines the threat posed by nuclear weapons following the end of the Cold War, and policies aimed at stemming nuclear proliferation.
Description: Ever since the earliest nuclear bombs were detonated over Hiroshima and Nagasaki, nuclear weapons have been one of the gravest security challenges facing the modern nation-state. Although only five countries acknowledged possession of nuclear devices in 1995, the realm of nuclear capabilities is one of deception and hidden dangers. With nations such as Israel, Pakistan, and India likely possessing nuclear weapons, and with so-called "rogue" states such as Iran, Iraq, and North Korea actively pursuing nuclear capabilities, the world's nuclear club was beginning to seem alarmingly less exclusive. Just as worrisome were the old Soviet warheads that, in the wake of the Soviet Union's downfall, remained in the hands of freshly independent, unstable, and cash-strapped states. What is the current nuclear weapons landscape, and what can be done to control nuclear proliferation? In this episode, host Peter Krogh sits down with Barry Blechman, Chairman of the Henry L. Stimson Center, and Lynn Davis, Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security Affairs, to discuss the risks of nuclear weapons and proliferation in the post-Cold War world.
