Defense and Security
From the end of World War II to the present, the challenge of arms control has been a central feature in the relationship between the United States and Russia—the former Soviet Union—as well as with emerging world powers. A series of treaties has defined permitted levels of nuclear and other strategic weapons and regularly gives occasion to examine the status of weapons arsenals around the world. Brookings experts apply their direct experience in arms control negotiations to their recommendations for maintaining the arms control regime.
