After a summer break, the WIIS leadership podcast is back to demystify all matters related to nuclear weapons — which is very necessary, given the escalation in threats emanating from the war in Ukraine. Ilana is joined by two women exceptionally well versed in these issues: Jessica Cox, Director for Nuclear Policy at NATO, and Polina Sinovets, Director of the Odessa Center for Non-Proliferation.
The world of nuclear weapons is very simple to those who deal in it, and baffling to everyone else: what is the difference between nuclear policy and nuclear deterrence? What is the difference between deterrence and non-proliferation? Is there really such a thing as a tactical nuclear weapon? Is a nuclear capability a military or political threat, or both?
This episode takes you through these and other questions, in a fascinating conversation between women who lead on nuclear issues.
