Earlier this year, the US and Russia agreed to extend the ‘Gold Standard’ New START agreement thereby ensuring that bilateral nuclear arms control remains on the high-priority agenda and paves the way for follow-up negotiations.
This event provides a rare inside look into the negotiation between the United States and Russia from the perspective of the first woman to serve as chief US negotiator of a bilateral nuclear treaty with Russia.
At a time of deep division over nuclear policy in the United States, Rose Gottemoeller shares how Republicans and Democrats worked together to achieve Senate approval of this critically important treaty for US and global security.
This event considers:
How were domestic political difficulties overcome in negotiating the treaty?
What can we learn about negotiations in nuclear arms control from the New START experience?
What role does gender play in nuclear negotiations?
What are the chances of successful follow-up negotiations and what are the risks to the world without US-Russia nuclear agreements?
As with all member events, questions from the audience drive the conversation.
