Abstract

Description

With the ongoing war in Ukraine and the recent suspension of the New START treaty, concerns about nuclear escalation have been on the rise. Rose Gottemoeller argues that, because of the existential threat that nuclear weapons pose, the United States has a special responsibility — indeed, an obligation to humanity — to use diplomacy to lower the nuclear temperature. In this article, she discusses the nuclear threat, the importance of diplomacy, and two primary toolsets of diplomacy and negotiation: nurturing communication and attending to process.
