The Heritage Foundation Hosts NPEC Panel on Underestimated: Our Not So Peaceful Nuclear Future

On June 30, 2015, Brian Finlay from The Stimson Center and Dr. Matthew Kroenig from Georgetown University joined NPEC's executive director, Henry Sokolski, for a panel discussion of the key findings in NPEC's latest book, Underestimated: Our Not So Peaceful Nuclear Future. The event was moderated by Michaela Dodge, Senior Policy Analyst at The Heritage Foundation.

With the world focused on the nuclear crisis in Iran, it is tempting to think that addressing this case, North Korea, and the problem of nuclear terrorism is all that matters and is what matters most.

Perhaps, but if states become more willing to use their nuclear weapons to achieve military advantage, the problem of proliferation will become much more unwieldy. In this case, our security will be hostage not just to North Korea, Iran, or terrorists, but to nuclear proliferation more generally, diplomatic miscalculations, and wars between a much larger number of possible players.

This, in a nutshell, is the premise of the book, Underestimated: Our Not So Peaceful Nuclear Future, which explores what we may be up against over the next few decades and how we currently think about this future. The book has already received critical praise from a divergent set of commentators, from Ambassador John Bolton to best selling author Eric Schlosser (Command and Control) to former Office of Net Assessment director Andrew Marshall.
