Twenty-First Century Threat Reduction: Nuclear Study Results from DTRA/ASCO   [open pdf - 334KB]

ASCO's research program addresses nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons threats and responses. This paper summarizes results from ASCO-sponsored studies in the nuclear area for fiscal year 2000-2001. ASCO studies surveyed prospects for nuclear proliferation as well as its implications for deterrence and other tools of coercive threat management. ASCO also assessed the utility of preventive threat reduction, that collection of non-coercive tools ranging from reciprocated unilateral action to orchestrated international agreements, with special emphasis on the efficacy of the Cooperative Threat Reduction program.
