Dr. U. Kühn, Dr. A. Graef, Dr. O. Meier

In the latest issue of the academic journal russian analytical digest three IFSH peace researchers contributed new publications on strategic stability, the European arms control regime and a commentary on the attempted assassination of Alexei Navalny in the context of the Chemical Weapons Prohibition.
Ulrich Kühn, head of the Arms Control and Emerging Technologies project, together with Liana Fix lays out how strategic stability in the 21st century needs to be rethought in order to address emerging challenges.
