A year ago Barack Obama proffered a vision of a nuclear-free world. But as Iran moves closer to acquiring nuclear weapon technology, the existing nuclear order appears to be unravelling. Joachim Krause and Benjamin Schreer argue that, despite a convincing vision, both the US administration's new bilateral agreement with Russia and its own Nuclear Posture Review are too conservative in their attempts to reduce the role of nuclear weapons in strategic decision-making. It is Europe that must step up to play a mediatory role in ensuring Global Zero is an attainable goal.
