Journal for Peace and Nuclear Disarmament Special Issue Call for Papers
In an attempt to set out a new direction in US missile defense, the Trump administration released the 2019 Missile Defense Review on January 17. Even under its heavy budgetary constraints, the US government has continued to strengthen its missile-defense systems in a variety of locations. Asian and European allies are other major players in constructing a global network of US missile-defense systems. The United States is also beginning to make strides toward previously avoided space-based system. In this special feature, the J-PAND editors wish to call for papers related to topics and questions that may include but are not limited to the following:
- What strategic implications will the US review have for Russia and China?
- Is the latest review a radical departure from past US policies?
- How will the recent developments affect the renewal of New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START) between the United States and Russia?
- Are emerging technologies breaking new ground in making missile-defense systems more robust?
