Preconference Workshop: Counter-Proliferation as the Third Pillar to DeterrenceSponsored By:
Deterrence is generally viewed as to having two pillars: 1) deterrence through the possession of strategic offensive capabilities, and 2) deterrence through nonproliferation initiatives aimed to eliminate the spread of nuclear weapon technology, and to reduce existing stockpiles of nuclear weapons. This workshop will discuss recognizing counterproliferation as the third pillar of deterrence. The workshop will also discuss an expanded role of organizations (agencies) already involved in deterrence and counterproliferation such as the Department of Defense and FBI, and the potential role of technical organizations such as DOE national laboratories. Pre-registration for this workshop is required.
