Debate: Modernization of Nuclear Missiles
The Project on Nuclear Issues (PONI) and Ploughshares Fund are pleased to invite you to the second in a debate series on a range of nuclear challenges and policy decisions the Trump administration will face in 2017. The debate series aims to provide a forum for in-depth exploration of arguments on both sides of key nuclear policy issues. Additional topics and dates will be confirmed soon.
Participants will be asked to address the following statement:
- Resolved – Current plans to rebuild the U.S. nuclear arsenal are excessive, and the new ICBM and cruise missile should be cancelled or substantially curtailed.
This event is supported by funding from Ploughshares Fund, the Defense Threat Reduction Agency, and the National Nuclear Security Administration.
