Nuclear weapons remain one of the gravest threats to humankind. The 60th ISODARCO course will address that threat, discussing the nuclear policies of the major nuclear powers and examining the impact that new technologies are having on the security of nuclear weapons and strategic stability. The goal will be not only to understand the changing technological context of the current nuclear era, but to explore the implications for managing the nuclear order and the impending risks to the nonproliferation regime. Can stability be preserved and maintained in this new technological environment?
