France’s Non-Proliferation Policy
David Santoro
This article provides an in-depth analysis of France’s current non-proliferation policy.
The 2010 U.S. Nuclear Posture Review: An Assessment
David Santoro
In an earlier issue of the Liu Global Focus series, David Santoro wrote that while in its first year in office the Obama administration did a good job of articulating an ambitious vision for the world in nuclear affairs, it would soon have to translate that vision into effective action. In this op-ed, David looks at how the administration have done just that, with the announcement of the much-anticipated U.S. Nuclear Posture Review (NPR) on April 6, 2010.
Global Focus: A Daunting Nuclear Agenda for 2010
David Santoro
A year ago, President Obama took office with the stated goal of making the elimination of all nuclear weapons a central element of its nuclear policy. In a landmark speech delivered in Prague on April 5, 2009, he further detailed his vision of a world free of nuclear weapons and he outlined an ambitious arms control agenda for the next decade. The task of translating this vision into action is now upon him. In this op-ed, David Santoro looks at 2010, and the challenging task of driving that vision to completion.

Major powers must stand together on Iran
David Santoro
David Santoro, a postdoctoral fellow at the Liu Institute, writes about how the international community should react to Iran's position on nuclear weapons. "It has never been clear whether Iran really wants nuclear weapons," writes Santoro. "Tehran is making it clear that it does not wish to work constructively with the international community. There must be consequences." "It is then imperative that Beijing stays the course on fresh sanctions against Tehran," he writes. "More than at any other time in history, major powers are united by common dangers."
