BSG Member Ambassador James Goodby, Hoover Institution, Stanford University is a guest lecturer at the “US-Russian START Plus Arms Control Simulation” at the Monterey Institute of International Studies. Ambassador Goodby talks about his involvement with various US-Russian nuclear negotiations, including the Start I treaty between 1981 and 1983, and the Cooperative Threat Reduction (CTR) Program. The class, taught by Dr. William Potter, Director of the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies, is a simulation of US-Russian strategic arms reduction talks. Students assume the role of US and Russian arms control officials in charge of negotiating a follow-up accord to the current START Treaty.
