Questions from the audience

How does the economic future of Russia filter through all of our perceptions of what is going on there?

David Holloway Answers


What are the motivations that might bring Iran and North Korea to the table? Do you have any hope to offer us?

David Holloway Answers

Richard Rhodes and Siegfried Hecker Respond


What does it mean to verify. You talked about the improvements in 2007 in North Korea, they gave us all sorts of information but it wasn’t quite enough-what is enough? Can America hold back and not get the full story on these places and still come up with the vision that works?

Sidney Drell Answers


The Hoover Initiative is focused on nuclear nonproliferation. Where is the major push back against the Hoover initiative in this country and is there anything that we as citizens can do to increase the likelihood of it being successful during this administration.
