NATO's security requires a hard look at and new approaches to NATO deterrence and defense through the prism of reducing the risk of nuclear use.

Abstract:

NATO's security requires a hard look at and new approaches to NATO deterrence and defense through the prism of reducing the risk of nuclear use. Forward-deployed U.S. nuclear weapons in Europe increase the risk of accidents, blunders, or catastrophic terrorism and invite pre-emption. Given these added risks, it is past time to revisit whether these forward-based weapons are essential for military deterrence and political reassurance. The Trump administration's National Security Strategy of December 2017 commits to this continued deployment without presenting the considered analysis that would emerge from a hard look. The chapters in this report, written by experts and practitioners in European security and nuclear weapons, provide a foundation for that hard look. The report underscores the strong arguments for NATO to move to a safer, more secure, and more credible nuclear posture without forward-deployed U.S. nuclear weapons in Europe. The challenge is how to advance current thinking about the military and political dimensions of alternative nuclear postures.
