U.S. Nuclear Weapons Policy: Report of a CFR-Sponsored Independent Task Force

President Obama has called for the eventual global abolition of nuclear weapons, but they will remain a fundamental element of U.S. national security in the near term. The CFR Task Force report makes recommendations on how to ensure the safety, security, and reliability of the U.S. deterrent nuclear force and puts forth measures to prevent nuclear terrorism and strengthen the nuclear nonproliferation regime. Task Force co-chairs William J. Perry and Brent Scowcroft will discuss the report’s main findings and recommendations.

The report is available on CFR’s website at http://www.cfr.org/nuclear_weapons_policy. Hard copies will be available at the meeting.
