Jessica Cox, a Sam Nunn School of International Affairs alumna and NATO's Director of Nuclear Policy, was cited in "NATO diplomats and experts meet in Riga to discuss NATO’s nuclear deterrence" by NATO.

“This symposium takes place at a challenging time” said Jessica Cox, NATO’s Director of Nuclear Policy, who chairs the two-day event. “We face a complex world where evolving capabilities across domains combine with increasing nuclear threats to challenge nuclear deterrence.   A month ago, we saw the demise of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty due to Russia’s development and deployment of the SSC-8 missile system, which is nuclear-capable, mobile, hard to detect, and lowers the threshold for the use of nuclear weapons. Russia has also increased its nuclear exercises and rhetoric.  We must adapt to this new security environment.”
