This grant is part of a wider portfolio announced this month by Carnegie Corporation of New York, aimed at understanding the potential for increased nuclear risks associated with the emergence of novel technologies in a volatile world.
The project will be conducted at RUSI under the Proliferation and Nuclear Policy programme, which has delivered significant research on developing nuclear threats, nuclear stability, NATO and North Korea. Tom Plant, Director of Proliferation and Nuclear Policy said, "Recent events on the Korean peninsula have brought to life the particular risks of crisis instability when nuclear weapons are involved. It's absolutely critical to understand how alliance dynamics and advances in military technology might influence nuclear decision-making in similar circumstances in future." Our collaborators at CNS will be led by Andrea Berger, Senior Research Associate at the Middlebury Institute for International Studies and a RUSI Associate Fellow, who said "This project could not be more timely. We are delighted that we will be collaborating with RUSI to produce innovative research on such an important international security issue”
