Wars raging in Ukraine and Gaza raise fears of escalation and wider war. Nuclear threats have been made.  Toxic relations among major powers raise concerns about a nuclear arms race.  Technological advances challenge traditional approaches to military power and nuclear stability.  The arms control framework governing nuclear affairs has been mostly dismantled.  ISODARCO 2025 will examine the problem of safely managing nuclear weapons and technological change in this deteriorating security environment.
