James E. Goodby and David A. Koplow in the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists

An exceedingly challenging agenda of urgent, important, and diverse arms control issues awaits the Biden administration. The New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (New START) will surely be a top priority, as well as picking up the pieces left from the Trump administration’s wreckage of the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty, the Treaty on Open Skies, and the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action with Iran. Ambassador James Goodby, member of GSI’s Non-Partisan Security Group, and David A. Koplow , both members of GSI’s Non-Partisan Security Group, reflect in the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists on possible structures and routes to tackle the vital issues before them. A “do not miss” article.
