ABSTRACT

Cooperative Threat Reduction for a New Era   [open pdf - 415KB]

"The Nunn-Lugar CTR program can rightly be called the Marshall Plan of nuclear nonproliferation. The purpose of this study is to review the techniques developed and used by the Nunn-Lugar program to date, including some closely related activities, and to recommend specific ways in which these techniques could be applied on a global basis to eliminate the various types of nuclear threats faced by the United States. Five categories of nuclear threat reduction will be discussed in this article: 1. Residual nuclear-related security problems in Russia. 2. Nuclear weapons programs in de facto nuclear weapons states. 3. Applying CTR techniques in the cases of former noncooperative states. 4. Nuclear weapons programs in noncooperative states. 5. Insecure storage of fissionable materials in countries around the world."
