The West's view of China as a threat to world peace overlooks its nuclear capabilities and strategic posturing, and its potential as an important partner for global disarmament.
Stephen Herzog is a Senior Researcher in Nuclear Arms Control at the Center for Security Studies (CSS) at ETH Zurich. He is also an associate of Harvard University’s Project on Managing the Atom. Stephen is drafting a book manuscript about multilateral nuclear arms control and has several other ongoing projects on nuclear deterrence, proliferation, and disarmament. His research draws on archival studies, elite interviewing, and survey experiments.
Prior to joining CSS, Stephen was a research fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School’s Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs. He holds a Ph.D. with distinction in Political Science from Yale University, an M.A. in Security Studies from Georgetown University, and a B.A. in International Relations from Knox College. Before returning to academia, Stephen worked for the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration and the Federation of American Scientists.
