CISSM Senior Fellow Catherine M. Kelleher and Cornell Professor Emeritus Judith Reppy led a workshop on South Asia nuclear order on May 2 and 3, 2016. The workshop was the latest in a series organized by Kelleher and Reppy as part of a larger project, "A Stable Transition to a New Nuclear Order."
This session, which took place in Washington, D.C., included scholars and practitioners from the United States, India, Pakistan, and Europe. The workshop discussion centered on the potential for nuclear learning to link paths to proliferation, complex deterrence challenges, and policy advice for a new American president.
The workshop series, which is funded by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, has included events in Berlin, Germany (with a Europe-Russia focus); Ithaca, New York (on American theories and policy concepts); and Monterey, California (with an East Asia focus). The project is a follow on to the work that Kelleher and Reppy led that concluded in the publication of Getting to Zero: The Path to Nuclear Disarmament (Stanford Press, 2011).
