Armchair Discussion: ‘The Future of European Nuclear Forces After 2020’
As the USA shifts focus to the East, economic realities bite, and proliferation threatens, European nuclear forces and the size and shape of NATO’s nuclear arsenal face an uncertain future. One of the more palatable options as the UK and France take key decisions concerning the future of their national deterrents may be expanded cooperation between the two nuclear-armed European nations.
This armchair discussion considered the direction of European nuclear forces over the coming decades.
Speakers included Matthew Harries (PhD Candidate, King’s College London) and Timothée Germain (Research Fellow, Centre for International Security and Arms Control Studies).
