Preventing Nuclear Conflict in Europe

In anticipation of the 2018 Munich Security Conference, Wolfgang Ischinger (Chairman of the Munich Security Conference), Sam Nunn (co-chairman of the Nuclear Threat Initiative), and the GEM members Igor Ivanov and Des Browne have written an Op-ed for Project Syndicate.

They believe that the U.S., Russia and Europe must increase co-operation as the longer rising tensions between NATO countries and Russia persist, “the tighter the resulting knot of distrust will become – and the greater the risk of the ultimate ‘lose-lose’ scenario: a military conflict.”

The authors believe that to improve the security of all people in the Euro-Atlantic region, it must begin with “reducing nuclear and other military risks.” To combat these risks, the authors outline four remedies, one of which being the need to “preserve and extend existing agreements and treaties that are crucial to sustaining transparency and predictability.” Read the complete four-step guide here.
