Nuclear weapons have not gone away, and the Trump administration has brought a new urgency, if not a new approach, to dealing with them. The president has met with Vladimir Putin as the New Start Treaty with Russia comes up for renewal in 2021; the first presidential summit ever with Kim Jong-un occurred to discuss denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula; and President Trump has decertified the Obama nuclear deal with Iran. To what degree should past nuclear talks guide future U.S. nuclear arms control negotiations? Can the art of the deal apply to stabilizing our nuclear future? Speaker Dr. Mary Curtin had a 25-year career as a State Department foreign service officer before joining the U of M’s Humphrey School of Public Affairs as Diplomat-in-Residence in 2013. Among her areas of expertise are nuclear nonproliferation.
