    NPWG Meeting 9/12: Guest Speaker Dr. Andrew Reddie

    5:40 pm

    This week we will be hosting our first guest speaker of the semester, Dr. Andrew Reddie, who will be giving a talk on the history of arms control!  See below for an abstract and bio.

    Why do states that compete with one another--arming proxies, stealing IP, and engaging in gray zone warfare--create agreements that curtail their ability to proliferate weapons that might help them win a war? On its face, this phenomenon represents a puzzle for scholars of international relations. In this presentation, I consider this question--arguing that arms control is driven by both cooperative and competitive dynamics. In the processes, I engage with broader efforts to control the development and use of technologies during war across time and space--culminating in a discussion of contemporary nuclear arms control examples.
    Dr. Andrew Reddie is an Assistant Professor of Practice at the University of California, Berkeley’s School of Information where he works on projects related to cybersecurity, nuclear weapons policy, wargaming, and emerging military technologies. He is also currently serving as research director of the Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity. Andrew is currently a Bridging the Gap New Era fellow, Hans J. Morgenthau fellow at Notre Dame University, a non-resident fellow at the Brute Krulak Center at Marine Corps University, research director at the Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity, and deputy director at the Berkeley APEC Study Center. Previously, Andrew served as deputy director of the Nuclear Policy Working Group, predoctoral researcher at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory’s Center for Global Security Research, and as an associate at the Council on Foreign Relations in Washington, DC.

    His work has appeared in Science, the Journal of Cyber Policy, and the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists among other outlets and has been variously supported by the Carnegie Corporation of New York, MacArthur Foundation, and the U.S. Department of Energy's Nuclear Science and Security Consortium.
