Nuclear Security and Nonproliferation in the Age of President Obama

Author:

Abstract:

President Barack Obama made nuclear non-proliferation a cornerstone of his foreign policy strategy and elevated the issue of securing nuclear weapons and material as priority in the international arena. International organizations, non-governmental organizations, states, scholars, strategists, and private citizens raised nuclear nonproliferation to international importance by reopening the nuclear weapons purpose debate. Under the leadership of President Barack Obama, the priority given to the nuclear nonproliferation agenda has brought tremendous progress and made the world more secure.
