Munk Dialogue with Rose Gottemoeller: assessing Russia’s nuclear threats

View descriptionShare

Following the Cold War, the US and Russia entered into a series of arms control treaties that gave the world hope that, one day, nuclear weapons may be a thing of the past. But as tensions have risen between the two nuclear powers over Ukraine and other irritants, Russia has been abandoning these agreements. Most recently, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that Moscow would walk away from the last major arms treaty with the US, New START, in 2026. 

What does all this mean for the prospect of nuclear war, and what can the United States and its allies do to get arms control back on track? 

On this Munk Dialogue, we’re joined by someone who has been at the very centre of international arms control efforts. Rose Gottemoeller was the Deputy Secretary General of NATO from 2016 to 2019. In 2009 and 2010, she was the chief U.S. negotiator of New START, and she is now a lecturer at Stanford University's Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies.
