Adam Stulberg, the newly announced chair of the Georgia Institute of Technology Sam Nunn School of International Affairs, and Lawrence Rubin, a professor in International Affairs, recently showcased their book on nuclear security to officials at NATO in Brussels and at the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments (CSBA) in Washington.

Jessica Cox, Director of Nuclear Policy Directorate at NATO and an alumna of the Nunn School, invited Stulberg and Rubin to participate in a series of discussions on nuclear stability at NATO from March 21 – 22.

On April 4, the professors also presented their book, entitled The End of Strategic Stability? Nuclear Weapons and the Challenge of Regional Rivalries, at CSBA, which was moderated by Under Secretary of Defense for Policy Eric Edelman. Rebecca Hersman, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction, served as a discussant. 

The book by Stulberg and Rubin examines how different states in different regions view strategic stability, the use or non-use of nuclear weapons, and whether or not strategic stability is still a prevailing concept. Contributors to this volume edited by Stulberg and Rubin explore policies of current and potential nuclear powers including the United States, Russia, China, India, Iran, Israel, Pakistan, and Saudi Arabia.

Stulberg and Rubin find that strategic stability is understood differently among different actors across different contexts and that this important concept should be tailored to effectively address the new and old global security challenges of the 21st century.

Stulberg will begin his tenure as the Nunn School's chair starting this July. In addition, he is also co-director of the Center for International Strategy, Technology, and Policy. His current research focuses on the geopolitics of oil and gas networks, energy security dilemmas and statecraft in Eurasia, Russia and “gray zone” conflicts, new approaches to strategic stability, internationalization of the nuclear fuel cycle, and implications of emerging technologies for strategic stability and international security.

Rubin is associate professor and director of Graduate Studies in the Sam Nunn School as well as a faculty affiliate of the Center for International Strategy, Technology, and Policy. He has conducted research in Morocco, Egypt, Israel, the United Arab Emirates, and Yemen. In addition, he recently returned to the Georgia Tech campus last fall after a year working in the Office of the Secretary of Defense for Policy.

The Sam Nunn School of International Affairs is a unit of the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts.
