WASHINGTON –The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars released, “Managing Nuclear Risks,” a new publication from Senior Vice President and Director of International Security Studies Dr. Robert Litwak.

In his latest release, Dr. Litwak critically assesses the heightened risks across the three major nuclear categories: relations among the existing nuclear-weapon states, the possible proliferation of nuclear weapons to additional states, and nuclear terrorism.

“Like a pandemic and climate change, a nuclear event would be a global game changer—and the risks of that have risen to their highest level since the Cuban Missile Crisis,” said Litwak

“Managing Nuclear Risks” follows Dr. Litwak’s “Nuclear Crises with North Korea and Iran: From Transformational to Transactional Diplomacy,” “Preventing North Korea's Nuclear Breakout,” “Deterring Nuclear Terrorism,” and “Outlier States: American Strategies to Change, Contain, or Engage Regimes,” as a leading source of reference for those looking for a well-researched position on both emerging and established threats to global nuclear security.

“Managing Nuclear Risks” is published by The Wilson Center and is a collaboration between International Security Studies and the Nuclear Proliferation and International History Project. The Wilson Center was named the world’s best think tank in Institutional Collaboration 2019 University of Pennsylvania Global Go To Think Tank Rankings Survey.
