Global Strategy

Why is it
important?

The threat of nuclear war is exacerbated by national security policies that are inherently offensive or otherwise cause instability.

The alternative is a system in which each state puts a premium on reassuring its neighbors that it poses no threat to them, including through verifiable treaties and transparency measures.

Only through such a system will countries reduce their need or desire to obtain and maintain nuclear weapons.

What needs to
be done?

States with actively deployed nuclear arsenals need to be persuaded that safer, more effective alternatives to nuclear deterrence do exist.

National and international security policies need to be developed that increase transparency and decrease incentives to use force first.

Common security regimes need to be established on a region-by-region basis.
