The Young Deep Cuts Commission is happy to introduce a new publishing series: Young Deep Cuts Policy Briefs. In the first issue Young Deep Cuts Commissioners Artem Kvartalnov, Noah Mayhew and Daria Selezneva outline immediate priorities for US-Russian arms control. They show how to find compromise on some of the most difficult issue areas of future arms control discussions in the framework of the US-Russia Strategic Stability Dialogue: long-range precision-guided weapons, missile defense systems, and non-strategic nuclear weapons.
The Young Deep Cuts Commission (YDCC) is a group of twelve young arms control experts from Germany, Russia, and the United States with diverse academic and professional backgrounds. The Young Commissioners develop fresh ideas to strengthen and revitalize nuclear arms control and disarmament. YDCC is part of the Deep Cuts project, an independent, nongovernmental initiative, which provides decision-makers as well as the interested public with concrete policy options based on realistic analysis.
The YDCC can be contacted via mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
