Upon assuming office, the next presidential administration will face a myriad of nuclear policy challenges within an increasingly tense security landscape. These include containing proliferation pressures worldwide; deterring nuclear coercion against the United States, its allies, and its partners; managing the size, structure, and effectiveness of the U.S. nuclear arsenal in a two-peer nuclear environment; mitigating the risks of nuclear escalation in conventional war; and preparing for the future of arms control. These multifaceted challenges demand innovative non-proliferation and deterrence strategies.

On April 2, the Strobe Talbott Center for Security, Strategy, and Technology at Brookings convened a panel of experts to discuss these and other nuclear issues the next administration is likely to face.
