About this Event
On August 2, 2019, the United States officially withdrew from the 1987 Intermediate Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, citing Russian testing and deployment of missiles banned by the treaty. In the weeks after its withdrawal, the United States has tested its own intermediate-range ground-launched cruise missile, while Russia has continued to claim it did not violate the accord and vowed to keep pace with any future U.S. deployments. Please join the Center for the Study of Weapons of Mass Destruction for a panel discussion on what the end of the INF Treaty means for the United States, for Great Power competition, for arms control, and for international stability. The panel will provide context for how we came to the end of INF, assess the important events that have already occurred in a post-INF world, and look ahead to the implications of possible U.S. deployment of intermediate range ground launched missiles.
