Adam Stulberg, the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs professor and Chair, and Jonathan Darsey, a Ph.D. candidate in the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs, have co-authored a PONARS Eurasia policy memo. The memo is entitled, “Turning Rivals into Frenemies: Shifting U.S.-Russian Trajectories at the Nexus of Global Nuclear Commerce and Nonproliferation.”
The memo published on Program on New Approaches to Research and Security in Eurasia (PONARS Eurasia) discusses the international security implications caused by the deteriorating U.S. nuclear industry. It also examines what this means for Russia as it emerges as a key global player offering commercial nuclear deals.
PONARS is a network of over 125 North American and post-soviet Eurasian academics, that work to advance security, politics, economics, and society research in Eurasia. Its mission is to develop policy relevant and collaborative research, connect scholarship to policy, and foster of sense of community among its scholars.
Jonathan Darsey’s research explores the intersection of political economy and geography, focusing on how political, social, and economic factors affect regional variations in development & conflict.
Adam Stulberg’s current research focuses on the geopolitics of oil and gas networks, energy security dilemmas and statecraft in Eurasia, Russia and "gray zone" conflicts, new approaches to strategic stability, internationalization of the nuclear fuel cycle, and implications of emerging technologies for strategic stability and international security.
The Sam Nunn School is a unit in the Ivan Allen College at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
