Security Challenges for Europe: Missile Defense, Nuclear Weapons, and Conventional Weapons

December 4, 2012
8:45 a.m. – 1:00 pm
Kenney Auditorium
1740 Massachusetts Ave NW
Washington, DC

The conference, co-sponsored by the Center for Transatlantic Relations and the Moldova Foundation, consisted of two sessions. The first will concentrate on two “strategic issues”: missile defense (the
European Phased Adaptive Approach) and on prospects for non-strategic nuclear weapons arms control. The second session will look at conventional arms issues: the future of the CFE and other conventional arms control approaches such as CSBMs and Open Skies. Both
sessions will examine underlying problems, the current state of play, relationships among the various issues, and possible arms control opportunities.
