With the upcoming transition to new U.S. leadership and the growing debate over how to balance national defense needs with global disarmament efforts, all eyes remain on policy makers, industry officials, and stakeholders throughout the U.S. nuclear enterprise. The 2017 Nuclear Deterrence Summit will once again bring these leaders together for the most timely discussions on the United States’ role in arms control and nonproliferation, potential changes to U.S. nuclear posture under a new president, and the dynamic nature of this country’s relationship with international allies and adversaries.
