"Finding a Way Out of the Iranian Nuclear Crisis"

Paper

By Abbas Maleki, Associate, International Security Program and Matthew Bunn, Professor of Practice; Co-Principal Investigator, Project on Managing the Atom

"...Rather than rushing toward confrontation with all its risks, all sides must put historic antipathies aside and find face-saving solutions. To give the Iranian advocates of compromise a chance to succeed, the United States and the other major powers need to put offers on the table that will show the people of Iran that nuclear restraint and compliance will put their nation on a path toward peace and prosperity."

"Cooperation to Secure Nuclear Stockpiles: A Case of Constrained Innovation"

Journal Article, Innovations, issue 1, volume 1

By Matthew Bunn, Professor of Practice; Co-Principal Investigator, Project on Managing the Atom

The 1991 dissolution of the Soviet Union posed an unprecedented challenge: to keep tens of thousands of nuclear weapons, and enough highly enriched uranium (HEU) and separated plutonium to make tens of thousands more, out of hostile hands. In this crisis, small groups of policy entrepreneurs launched major innovations to spur the nuclear complexes of the former rival superpowers to pursue their common interest in securing and dismantling nuclear stockpiles. Billions of dollars have now been spent pursuing these efforts, thousands of bombs' worth of nuclear materials have been permanently destroyed, and security both for thousands of nuclear weapons and for enough nuclear material for tens of thousands more has been substantially improved.
