In recent years, the world has witnessed multiple crises in regions where nuclear weapons are present: the Korean peninsula saw heightened tensions throughout 2017; China and India were involved in a major border crisis; violence between India and Pakistan on the Line of Control in Kashmir has been the highest in 15 years and the U.S. and its partners in the Middle East now face a highly uncertain future vis-à-vis Iran.                   

The U.S. and other strong world powers want to prevent nuclear war around the world. Yet, as great power competition resurges and U.S. interests in Asia pit it against actors like Iran, Pakistan, and increasingly China, the U.S. crisis management role in nuclearized regions is more complicated.What is the probability of conflict and loss of U.S. influence as other strong powers compete more aggressively to use crises as opportunities to overshadow the traditional U.S. role as crisis manager?

How does this dynamic increase the risk of nuclear war?

Moeed Yusufdraws on his experience and research to look at opportunities, challenges, and risks of crises in regional nuclear contexts and suggests policy options for U.S. diplomacy and treaty making.
