The workshop, initially scheduled for 9-10 June 2020 in Berlin, has been postponed to the fall.
The call for papers will be reissued, once a new date for the workshop has been set. Please stay tuned.
If you have any questions, please contact us via email (cis[at]hertie-school[dot]org).
As part of a research project on “Understanding Assurance, Deterrence, and Potential Nuclear Escalation in Europe” funded by the Stanton Foundation, the aim of the workshop is to facilitate exchange among a new generation of researchers from Europe and elsewhere who are studying nuclear security policy.
We are particularly interested in papers that deal with
- the role of (non-strategic) nuclear weapons in alliance assurance dynamics;
- the management of diverging assurance and deterrence needs in alliances (in particular in NATO);
- the potential consequences of assurance failure, the end of NATO’s nuclear sharing arrangement as well as possible options European states could and should pursue;
- or the potential consequences of deterrence failure and nuclear escalation scenarios in the European theatre.
The workshop will take place at the Hertie School in Berlin.
